Default L&S Supply Feedback

Good morning.

I have an Inland receiver that was drilled and tapped on the left side for a scope mount. The mount attached via one screw that's through the barrel ring.

Google searches for receiver repair have yielded a shop in Minnesota called L & S Supply. They say they can weld over the hole, heat treat the receiver and refinish it for $180. Seems fair to me.

Has anyone used L&S for repair or restoration work? Any complaints?

I would be extremely cautions when considering messing with the heat treating.

I have not used them but I have heard they can do the work.
The issue is, with the hole plugged, will there letters missing? Will that bug you?
I would buy a set screw for the hole and buy $ 180 worth of ammo.

My concern as well. But John Andrewski has been known to rebuild cracked M2 Carbine receivers so there are ways to work on them, apparently.

The hole is on the left side of the receiver near the wood line. It has a set screw in there now.

I can't find much about this fellow other than he authored at least one book on the M1 Carbine. I have not seen the book.

By most accounts the book is full of photos of rifles with reproduction/knockoff parts...

Unless it is a rare receiver, why "fix" it?
The hole does no harm.
Spending $180 to plug a hole in a shooter makes little sense, and if it is a "rare" collectible receiver, repairing it will not add to and maybe detract from the value- JMHO.

Default Look in that book for these two

See Examples F and G
Look for the 'After Filling Stake Marks' work L&S performed on the 2 Un-Quality Carbines pictured in the book..... #'s 4,432,669 and 4,432,671

Quoting the Author:

"UN-QUALITY"
"It is the Author's opinion that original UN-QUALITY marked carbines that have not been messed with are the rarest of all full production carbines and are prized by collectors. Very few of these rifles have survived as they were originally manufactured."

Larry Horner's son Tommy passed along dozens of work orders, inventory lists, pictures and Data sheets his Dad had on these 2 and many many more, from as far back as 1997.

Think first before sending any $$ to L&S .

Was receiver repair a part of the project?
