One more reason not to use POD's; I called to file a claim, I'd purchased insurance in case there was damage. When I went to file the claim I found out that the insurance is not a one time fee, they don't tell you but it's a fee you pay for every month, and they also don't tell you that there's a $100 deductible.

Not a reputable company, I won't be doing business with them again.

They have several good manufacturers operating there. Ruger has a factory where they build some firearms in Prescott. I think they're making their new sound suppressors there too. Patriot Ordnance Factory is in Phoenix. They make some very nice high end AR15 style rifles. There are a few more I can't think of right now. They also have "constitutional carry" and they have a shall sign law for NFA purchases, so you can't get turned down by The CLEO on a Machinegun, Suppressor, SBR, etc...


I hope you can get them fixed to like new!
Yavapai College in Prescott has a gunsmithing course. My ex-brother graduated from there. The students have to do so many projects per year, including several re-bluing jobs. He re-finished a Browning A-Bolt for me (and re-finished the stock) for cost of supplies. Instructor said he would value it at $1500-$2000 for bluing alone. Students are often looking for firearms to work on.

Thanks for the great tip I'll call them

One problem with this, let dust build up on a firearm, it'll wick any moisture out of the air better than a dehumidifier. That will cause rust. I've seen it in SoCal and I've seen it in Ariz. I've also seen it back east where people are running dehumidifiers 100% of the time.

They actually still get rust. Not near as much in the more humid environments. It is really dry around this part of the world and in Arizona but monsoons and what Rojkoh said. We get some bad monsoons for a couple weeks or so every few years and everything gets a good layer of rust on it spontaneously. Oxidation happens everywhere in the world somehow!
