Any recomendations for a gunsmith in FF area

9 posts in this topic

I need some help, my Remington 7400 won't discharge the shell after shooting. The incoming shell ends up getting jammed into the spent cartridge and has turned my semi auto into a single shot. I've tried cleaning it, but I can't take the bolt out. Can anyone give me some suggestions on how to fix this problem?

More so, I would love to bring the gun to a gunsmith and have him help me fix the problem. Does anyone have any recommendations for a smith in the area?

Contact Dick Henke at Dalton Sports, just a short drive from Fergus Falls. He's been at it a long time and should have no problem fixing your rifle. Also look listing for Henke's Gun Works.

Give Jim Neigel a call. North of Fergus about 7-8 miles. He'll be able to help you.

Now I see why when I call there and ask if my boat is done they hang up on me!

You are correct.

I think you are thinking of Mike Partain. He no longer has a store, but may do some work on the side.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
