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.

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

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
