The Gun Doctors, Inc. ?

Just wondering if anyone here had had any work done by Kevin, last name unknown, from The Gun Doctors in Roselle, IL? I am looking for a local smith, relatively who I can use in the future for minor tweaking of both semi-auto pistols and revolvers. If anyone has used them to have work done on a gun I would appreciate replies.

If he is a full time gunsmith, check with the Better Business Bureau to see if there are any complaints filed. Verify that he is in business and not some guy running a scam or just learning. I don't want them to use my gun as a "test".

If I buy a gun over the net from a business, I call the BBB and inquire if they are aware of a business by that name and if there are any complaints against them. If they are clean...I buy. If not, I don't send them my money or credit card info.

Just protect yourself.

Thanks for the rsponse buddy. Trust me, I am asking because I am looking for someone I can use locally, by which I mean drive to an actual store and drop my pistol off for light work. That is one of the amin reasons I am asking here if anyone has used them in the past. So, to the original question, has anyone used them for any work?

Gun Doctor

Guys - I know this is an older post and I'm new here. I have first hand experience working with The Gun Dr. in Roselle and they also do all my FFL transfers. Kevin the gunsmith has been there for over 25 years and does EXCELLENT work. I just saw some pic's of a friend of mines SA widebody that was totally redone by Kevin and it's beautiful and he is an artist! Good shop for Gunsmithing, They only sell used and I normally don't find what I'm looking for when I'm shopping for guns in there, however they have always been professional and willing to help. Mandi is the person who runs the shop and her dad was the one who started the Gun Dr. and trained Kevin. www.GunDr.com

Take Care - JP

jerry, thank you for the answer. I might have to make a trip there and check them out since I'm always on the hunt for used guns. I also wouldn't mind getting a look at some of their work first hand.

Gun Dr

No Problem. Glad I could help. I've also used Gander Mountain in Geneva for a couple of minor GS jobs on my shotguns and one of my pistols. The GS's name was Greg. He did nice work and the turn around time was decent. Since you in the southside the closest Gander is probably in Joliet. You may also want to try MegaSports in Plainfield. I haven't been to Mega in awhile, but they have an awesome range.

Take Care and good luck.

I was just at Mega Friday night. Of all the ranges I've hit it is my favorite. I have not checked to see what gunsmith services they offer, never actually thought of it truth be told.

Mega Range

The range at Mega is one of the best around. I also like JR Shooting sports, but I think they are pricey. I wish I could find a decent outdoor pistol range to shoot at. I shoot quite a bit at Buffalo Rock in Ottawa at their pit, but that is just plinking.

Take Care and give Kevin a shot at Gun Dr. The place is small, but I think they do my GS business than gun sales!
