    Have any of you guys heard of Mang Dolpo's (formerly of Northstar) niece, Coset, who runs a gunsmithing outfit near the location of Tony Pascual's? I'm building a gun and she came highly recommended by Mang Dolpo. Never had any experience with her outfit, though. If any of you have had any experience with her work, I sure would appreciate the feedback! Thanks one and all!

    He now works for a security agency based at the Catleya Building on Salcedo Street. You can reach him through cell no. 09162649222. You may also try his residence number (although i'm not sure if this is still ok) at 292-5778.

    Horge, is this the phone number you were referring to? :)

    You're welcome! From what I know, di sya pwede tumanggap sa office, since private employee sya. But he does appointments, usually after office hours or weekends. He also does home service now, from what I gather.

    I already had Mang D's number, and was trying to save a call or two.

    I was talking about a contact number for his niece Cosette(?): the geographic reference point (Tony Pascual's shop) has moved some distance, and I'm not sure if the rough description of where her shop is, takes this into account. It's not a lot of fun trying a house-to-house along the QC-Manila border.

    I went to the shop of a.p. pascual last sat to get a quotation for a job.

    Their address is 36 Mariveles St. cor Dapitan Q.C. tel is 7417243, the sisters that are running the place are Cosette and Margie Pascual.

    Just dont bring an SUV or any wide wheelbase cars going to their place coz the St. is sooooooo narrow!

    Horge, sorry, pero di ko din kasi alam yung address and phone number nila. Anyway, Chie has already provided us the needed info.

    To Chie, have you had any past experience with them, and would you recommend them?

    Thanks.

    I only met Margie eh! Her answers seems straight and honest to goodness about the questions I had asked her on the job I wanted for my gun. She's cute ;f


    No experience with their work amigo, though Margie said that Jun Gino gets his pistolas serviced at their shop. :)

    Young Once,

    I had good experience in having my Colt M1991 A1 ORM done by the shop of the Pascual sisters. I am satistified with their works, the gunsmith is Arnold. I always deal with Marge, I saw Cossette only once in the shop.

    Below are some of the works done with my 1911.

    Mounting of Bomar sight
    Dovetail front sight
    Serration front slide
    Magwell
    Trigger Job
    Match barrel
    Black Chrome
    Front grip checkering

    I hope this help in your inquiry.

    Whom would you prefer to fix/customized your gun, MANG DOLPO or COL. BAYANG?

    Thanks!

    pardon my ignorance, but is AP Pascual, Tony Pascual also? Do they have a store in their shop where you can buy parts over the counter?

    Thanks!

    Namron, insofar as fixing guns are concerned, OK si Mang Dolpo. Okay din naman si Col. Bayang as I had one of my guns completed by him a long time ago. As far as I'm concerned, though, medyo inconvenient puntahan si Col. Bayang kasi malayo sa office ko yung shop nya at talagang kelangan sadyain. His advantage is that complete ang gamit nya. But both of them do good work.

    For the other BOG's I'd like to ask this question, I'm building a gun on a tight budget. Complete na yung parts sa taas. Yung receiver na lang. I plan to use Armscor parts where I can save. Can you suggest what Armscor Parts I can use for the receiver and what parts I should'nt scrimp on?

    Thanks to one and all!!!

    Di ko ma-gets, do you mean the hammer, trigger assembly etc?
    Why armscor parts?
    Have your gunsmith build it. Mas maganda pa and libre pa fitting

    Allegra, yup, I meant the receiver parts. Trigger, hammer, grip and thumb safeties, mainspring housing, etc. I was told by someone that okay naman daw armscor parts, but there are some armscor parts I should't use, such as the thumb safety and the sear spring, but I'm not sure if this is true. And considering my tight budget, it seemed like a good idea to use Atmscor parts where I can, and branded parts for those where I can't. Yun nga lang, I don't really know what parts to scrimp on and what parts to really spend on. :)

    Thanks again!
