UPDATE:  Nov 8, 2023    We are STILL waiting for our shields. We've been in constant contact with our parts supplier and they are getting closer to entering full production. I'll guess 14-30 days but we don't build these so the time frame is still somewhat speculative on my part.  Once full parts production is resumed, we have ordered enough pieces to take care of orders for the rest of the year our production plus additional future orders to take care of 2024 and 2025. In the mean time, it's still  better that you hang onto your shotgun rather than have it waiting at our facility. Keep checking here for updates We'll put a notification here at the appropriate time. . This DOES NOT effect repairs or riot gun conversions

Also repair/replacement of small parts except as noted below. We will evaluate your shotgun and provide a full repair costs prior to conversion.

SHIELDS:  Nov 8, 2023    We are still waiting for our first new shipment to arrive. This has been a long slow process, 3 steps forward-2 steps back. It appears that we could have some units in hand within the next 2 weeks, but I wouldn't bet my hunting dog on it.  We have received acceptable approval samples a few weeks ago, so things are progressing. Keep the faith, it will happen hopefully sooner than later.
PLEASE NOTE: We do not sell shields as stand alone parts. Everything we get is dedicated to completing customer guns.
This price does not include:
  • New replacement wood if required
  • Rebuilding of "basket case" guns
  • Cost of replacing damaged bolts, carriers, and left hand extractors
  • Heavily rusted guns
Stock refinish is not included but available upon request.  
BAYONETS:  Trench guns only accept the 1913 British and 1917 US bayonets. Most of the surplus bayonets you'll find will have damage to the pommels from being used as a hammer etc. If you purchase a trench gun from us and you send us your bayonet we will clean up the "T" slot in the pommel to fit correctly at no charge to you.  This service DOES NOT APPLY to the modern reproduction bayonets. We don't even offer to fit them as a chargeable item (yes, they're that bad)
