Here at Dixie I strive for quality over quantity and although I will try to have guns done as timely as possible my priority is making sure that they are done right the first time.
NOTICE: Due to health issues, I will no longer be taking on any custom gun work. I will however continue to make mechanical repairs and do action work. Thank you, Dixie Firearms All prices include Parts and Labor unless otherwise specified.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Although tightening an action up and throating cylinders will generally increase accuracy on a factory gun it is not always the case. I have especially been finding issues with Ruger cylinders as they are not linebored. A factory gun still has flaws and less than desireable tolerances. I will make every attempt to catch any potential problems ahead of time with variations in factory cylinders and barrels I cannot guarantee accuracy results although most guns respon positively. The only way I can guarantee the accuracy of a factory gun is if I also replace the cylinder and barrel.

NOTE: If multiple work items are performed, some pricing may be reduced since there may be some duplication of work between jobs.
