Australian Gunsmith to regulate.a Sabatti 45/70
      #379472 - 20/09/23 08:29 AM

G'Day all,

I have a Sabatti DR in 45/70 and am looking at having it re-regulated.

The wedge has fallen out and it is currently crossing over around 50M. The left barrel is printing just to the right and high of the right barrel at 50M. I need to confirm at 100M but previously one was on the black (T5 target) and one was on the left edge, around the two/one ring.

Are there any Aussie smiths who will do this?

Am I going to wince when I see the price

I am using a 405 HRBC hardcast proj on 34gr of 2207 for about 1400fps.

There were a couple in Vic that use to do that sort of work, I think. I'll see if I can dig their names up. From memory one use to be in Lilydale.

No unfortunately, I did cut a new one and place it in gently just to hold things in place.

It hasnt changed anything but hopefully will stop it getting worse.

Kevin was one of the blokes I was thinking of and yes, last I heard he had moved to Bairnsdale.

Rodd Flower is in Vic, near Bendigo.

Does all the Perazzi warranty work and has built a few doubles - I've seen a completed one and one that was a WIP.

His YT videos on the build process and regulation are good viewing

Rob Bloomfield on Sunshine Coast is another option

Thanks all,

I have sent messages to all and will see what comes back.

So far Rodd Flower is a no but he had another name for me, Rodney Hotham in Tamworth (a bit closer than VIC).

Apparently, Kevin Sharp is not taking on any more work and is retiring soon.

I am waiting on responses from Rob and Rodney, fingers crossed.

Hey Tony - another option is Rolf Bachnick - in Lilydale, Vic.

Not sure if it's something he would be interested in doing - but his work quality on 2 projects for me has been to a high standard and reasonably prompt.

May be worth a call - although I've just Goolged him and Google says he is 'permanently closed' ;-(

Big worry if all double gun and rifle smiths retire.

Alex Beer is young enough. He needs to come back to gunsmithing and gunmaking.

I don't think Rolf Bachnick is actually "permanently closed". I think he has only closed his landline is now relying on his mobile 0400815483. As of earlier this year he was still advertising his services. Worth a call to confirm one way or the other.

I found a business that will regulate a DR https://custom37.com/

They are in Tamworth so a lot closer for me to.
