PLEASE READ BEFORE SENDING YOUR GUN!
So that we may assist you in the most efficient possible manner, it is important that you call or email us to discuss the work you wish to have done prior to shipping. We have expanded our operations to two shops and each specializes in different operations; we want to direct your job to the appropriate location and advise you of the approximate costs and estimated turnaround times before you ship your gun.
Cole Gunsmithing employs three gunsmiths; each of whom have one or more specialties within the trade. See our list of services below for the variety of services we offer, including mechanical repair, stock modification and stock making, refinishing, some restoration, bluing and custom builds.
Rich Cole has been working on fine shotguns for over thirty years and has a well- trained team of technicians delivering the highest quality gunsmithing service.
We are one of only four (4)) Beretta Warranty Service Centers in the USA and are well-versed in the general service of Perazzi and other fine Italian Shotguns. We now have two facilities offering best-quality gunsmithing services; our newest location in Naples, Florida and the original shop in Harpswell, Maine. Both shops are equipped with high-quality machinery and tooling. Most semi-auto work and hot bluing is handled in our Maine facility. While most DT10/11, SO5, Perazzi work and barrel fitting is handled in Florida.
Most of our work is done in-house, however we do contract some processes to other specialists in the trade such as color case hardening, electroplating, and some choke work. We believe that the gunsmithing trade is highly specialized and no one can be 'expert' in every facet; therefore, at times we will refer customers with certain jobs to others in the trade that may specialize in their specific need. We are glad to do this in order to provide our customers access to the best possible skills and service available.
We are ready to assist you in our Maine or Florida location, please call before shipping your firearm to be sure it goes to the correct facility.
