Extremely positive experience with Aaron Roberts at Roberts Precision Rifle in Houston, would recommend him and only him
I guess you could say that about any business/customer relationship though. I mean, why would a baker put up with all the requests for wedding cake decorations if they know so much more than the customer?My take is that gunsmiths make money by building guns. All you have to do is read through the mounds of meaningless crap we pick apart and discuss in these threads and take that into consideration when thinking about why gunsmiths are short with people.
It’s hard to make money building guns when you spend all day talking through meaningless details with people who don’t know shit. The shorter they are, the more rabbit holes they can avoid, the more work gets done, the shorter their lead times, the more money gets made. I feel for em, it’s probably very difficult trying to find the line between customer service and getting work done.
I’m half hesitant these days to discuss the names of current preferred smiths on forums. Hate for them to become like many others who have been spread across forums and now can’t come close to their quoted build times.
