    hi again fellow BOGS... i'm planning to get an armscor hi-cap or a norinco hi-cap (if meron na) now the question is kanino ko papagawa? i plan to have it black chrome and paliitan ko yung grip size, fitting, engraving, and gusto ko rin palagyan ng rail... and maybe pakulayan ng ODgreen. they say metrillo and col. bayang are good. i heard rin na si Alfred marquez who used to be with weapon system is also good. so who would you recommend? any comments or suggestions?

    btw ok lang ba if i post this thread or dapat PM lang? baka may ma-offend sa mga reply

    i've seen noli metrillo's work already, specially the customization of armscor units, HE's GOOD!!! he's done my thumb rest for my open gun and i like the natural curved design instead of the straight one others make...

    i just heard yesterday that noli was a 'student' of col. bayang way back... so it would be up to you to choose. you wouldn't lose with either...

    IMHO, a student must always do better than the master... that is, if the student was a true disciple :alien:

    Sir I think he used to work at "Balolong's Gunsmithing." That is where he got burned from the re-bluing tank. Si Balolong po yung kilalang gunsmith ng revolver nung dekada 70's at 80"s. They are located close to Tony P.

    Disclaimer: di nako up to date sa ibang gunsmiths , I'm sure there are others just as good

    Current review ni Mterillo:
    These guys can fabricate anything , including suspension linkages of my mountain bike hehe
    When the roll pin of my cz broke sending my firing pin into my face plus little springs in the grass
    Brought it to metrillo , suya na gumawa ng springs.
    Inactivate nya yung firing pin safety block ulit by making his own spring. Ang liit nun!

    A friend broke the slide stop ng cz nya , wala ng spare parts available. Brought it to metrillo, in 3 days , may bagong slide stopna

    Kanya kanyang hiyang

    So do you guys think we can come up with an updated list of "good" gunsmiths here in the Philippines?(not only manila based). The last thread above didn't really posted much. There were lots of OT discussed kasi eh. Our toys are expensive. So it pays to know before hand where to have them smithed. tnx.:)

    It's not that easy kasi baka ma sisi
    even the best gunsmiths sometime goof it up
    a good general rule is to look where IPSC shooters ( bugbog mga baril ) get their guns fixed, sigurado hasa gumawa yung smith na yun
