Hi 500Boswell,

I don't think that he will come out of retirement, but Alex Beer from Tasmania is first class in all aspects of firearms and has built his own D.R. from scratch.

If you cannot talk him around, another gunsmith that has done this type of work over many, many years is Ralph Bachnick from Melbourne.

Cheers for now,

There are several others who are probably worth a mention too.

Bob de Vries of Kudu Services in Victoria is no stranger to double rifle work.

Vic Pederson in the NT although I'm not sure if he is still working.

Ralph Dauner in Northern NSW (could be Newcastle but I'm not sure) is the official Krieghoff gunsmith in Australia.

I suppose it depends what you need doing.

If it were me I would give Ross Waghorn a call and get a recommendation off him......as he is well and truly in the know re double work.

Hope this helps.

Happy New Year.

GG

Ralph Dauner is at Tenambit near Maitland (west of Newcastle). German trained and Kreighoff repair agent. Seems to know his way around a double but I havenít had any serious work done by him. He seems the sort of bloke that if he is not comfortable doing something he would tell you.

Phone number: (02) 4933 1181. Or 0434 615 417

Cheers, Chris

He does not claim to be a double gunsmith or a gunsmith at all, but our own Alan Moon here on NE has re-regulated or regulated from scratch several double rifles. Or shotgun DR conversions.
