SAFETY NOTE: Headspace is one of the most critical measurements of each firearm.  Albright’s Firearm Service LLC reserves the right to check headspace on any gun, especially older guns, surplus military guns or any firearm where major action component parts were replaced or serviced.  If Albright’s Firearm Service LLC finds any firearm out of headspace or unserviceable for any reason we reserve the right to immediately disable the firearm. Hardness testing and or reheat treating may be necessary before rebarreling/rechambering any military type action.  Albright’s Firearm Service is not responsible for any receiver damage during barrel removal or installation.  We use proven and proper techniques for rebarreling all makes and models.  Several hard military actions have been known to crack or break while being serviced. Some military bolt lugs also have been known to have stress cracks. 



Our cleaning services consist of complete disassembly, cleaning and inspection for worn or damaged parts, then properly lubricated and reassembled.  If worn or damaged parts are found the customer will be contacted and advised.  Firearms in for cleaning will not be test fired unless this weapon was initially brought in for a malfunction problem.

When cutting off stocks we use carbide tipped blades and have had good luck with them.  We protect the stock finish during this service the best we can.  Occasionally with exceptionally hard finishes or poor grades of wood we have experienced minor chipping and pullouts. If chipping or pullouts occur we can either repair the damage or refinish the stock per customer’s direction.  Chipping can also occur while drilling into these same types of stock for swivel studs and other furniture. This additional labor will be billed to the customer.

Firearms brought in for refinishing that are in rough condition will need extra handwork prior to bluing/browning etc. Headspace will also be checked on any firearm in poor condition. In some cases all damage cannot be removed before refinishing. We also offer Cerakote finishes, Teflon Coating, Electroless Nickel, Nitre Bluing and Gold Plating (for small parts) Turn-a-round time depends on volume and time of year. If your firearm is plated, it must be stripped before it can be refinished. This would be an additional charge.
