DOA guns in VB, it might take a little bit, but they do very clean work.

Don’t know if they’re doing P&Ws but would not recommend Tacticool Firearms in NN, was not pleased with some of their work in the past.

I believe Coastal Gun Works is back up and running in a new location near the intersection of Northhampton and Independence Blvd.

Good to hear Mike opened the business back up. He built me an FAL back in 2016 and then I saw that coastal gunworks closed down some years between then and now.

Would highly recommend this guy!

Coastal did a pin & weld for me quite a few years back, maybe around 2009/2010.  It was functional and maintained alignment for my suppressor, but it was ugly, like really ugly.  I had to break out the file and clean it up.  They certainly seemed like good people and came well reviewed, I was just disappointed in the final product.  

I haven't had any smith work done at DOA, but have made a bunch of purchases with them.  They also seem to be good people with solid customer service and decent stock.  I did ask about cutting and threading a CZ452 barrel once and they were backed up a couple months... I went with a shipping option based on the time and price.

I went with DOA.  Good work for $75 and 3 days.

Thanks for the help.

Thanks for that info! I know Mike worked at the LGS and I see him in there. I'm going to visit him Monday.

To the OP I highly recommend Mike. He's a awesome dude and does really good work.
