What can Crusader do for you?

You guys are familiar with Crusader Weaponry’s custom rifles and Slipstream Weapon Lubricant.
But what else can Crusader do for you?

How about transform your old shotgun into a new top end tactical shotgun?  If you have an old rusty 870 or 500, send it to Crusader.  You will be stunned with the gun you get back!  It will look better than new, run better than new and very well could become your most favorite gun ever.

You have a fun little Rimfire?  A Ruger 10/22 or an M&P15-22?  Crusader can really trick those out.  Turn your old .22 into a sweet zombie gun you will love to shoot and show off.

But what is the best thing Crusader can do for your existing gun?   Joe is a specialist on the M14/M1A type rifle.  He doesn’t talk about them very often because he’s talking about other guns mostly these days – but the man is an M14 Artist.  He can make yours sing and dance.

    Hey Ogre… I have a 20 gauge 870. It’s a bone stock express youth model, and as a shotgun it works pretty well as is.

    But sometimes I get lonely. Can your guys make my 870 hold my hand when I’m sad, or feed me soup when I’m sick?

    A bed time story mod would be awesome…

    Seriously though, I’d love to know what you can do to a Remington 700.

      You want your 20 gauge more sexy, huh? That can be done.

      What do you want done with your 700?

        Honestly I want my 700 to work exactly like a Longbow… which means selling it and saving up.

        • 03/08/2012    

          So what you want to do is sell the 700 and use that money to start a Longbow Installment plan. Simple.

    I’m really considering sending Joe my CETME. I’d love a cool paint job and the slipstream treatment. We’d just need to talk numbers.

    • 03/08/2012    

      Bro, numbers are quite small for you. Go ahead and send it. We’ll take care of you.

    I had no idea that Joe was an M1A specalist…not an easy system to do correctly. How muct to replace a Rem700 barrel & possibly threading the muzzle? Turn-around time? I’m not sure if I want to invest the money in the tools if I’m only going to do once.

    • 03/08/2012    

      Were are really not doing bolts. We don’t have a Lathe which is a hinderance for a lot of what people want done. So it all depends.

    Well, I pick up my ACR next month. Once I break it in I’ll probably be sending it to you guys with a G17 of mine for ST treatment and a digital Cerakote on the rifle, as well as Edge service on the 17.

    “Were are really not doing bolts.”

    Leverguns? I have a BLR I’d like a few things done to.

    • 03/08/2012    

      Yes, we can do Levers. We love our Levers.

    Half day classes:
    mens pistol
    womens pistol
    Rifle marksmanship (you know I need this one!)
    Basic HOME defense, room clearing (WTF is “slice the pie)
    This could be split into three classes:
    Pistol
    Rifle
    Shotgun

    These would be starter classes. Get people hooked without spending the $300-$400 on a class and ammo. I would rather buy a new gun for $400(or AR parts, ammo etc). Now IF I took a class and got hooked on them, then I would be more willing to spend $$ on classes in the future.
    My wife (and some of her friends) would love to take a beginer pistol course, but will NEVER spend a whole day and 200-300 rounds and $300 doing it. I believe that this is a TOTALY missed marked. Women who have guns in the house, don’t really enjoy them (pushy husband like me) and have FEW skills.

      I can work with you and your wife – smaller segments. Come talk to me at Basin.

    Crusader 870 T/T (Turkey/Tactical).
    Already talked to Joe about this one…awaiting resolution of some work uncertainties, and drier weather to keep the level-of-effort on the metal finishing reasonable.

    George, I’ve already got my 15-22 running pretty slick with some OLD (Grandpa’s, after he passed, found it) Outer;s gun oil. Laugh if you want, that stuff is SLICK.

    What would you recommend for the 15-22 to get it rolling at the next level?

    • 03/09/2012    

      The ST-2 treatment, a permanent lubrication. Some internal geometry mods to improve cycling. And the some Cerakote refinishing to make it look sexy.

    Can you replace stocks?

      on what?

    Hmmm… Ogre, you’ve got me curious…. what kinds of internal geometry mods?

    • 03/10/2012    

      Trade Secrets!

    Can they do anything with Smith & Wesson revolvers? I’ve got a M1917 chambered in .45 Colt that needs some serious gun smiting. It was a gift from a LEO partner before he was killed in 2004. I’d love to get this weapon back in service.

    • 03/10/2012    

      I would actually send that to the Smith and Wesson Performance Center.

    I want a Springfield M1A, bad, bad enough to hide the purchase from She Who Must Be Obeyed. But I want it to be broke in right and tweaked right. I’m good with iron sights for a while, then I’ll hang some sort of optic on it after I get it all figgered out.

    I trust George’s opinions on stuff like this. Should I try and break it in according to what I read in the intarwebs or just send it to Joe straight out of the box?

    Don’t know exactly why, but this gun is very sexy to me and I want it to work right, for a long time.

    Lammyno.

    • 03/10/2012    

      Get the gun. Examine and feel it. Then send it to Joe and see what it’s like when you get it back!

    The real question is not about the cheap cheesy shotguns like the 870 and the mooseberg, the real question is what can you do with a REAL shotgun, an Ithaca M-37 featherweight 7-shot riot-gun in 12ga.

    • 03/12/2012    

      sorry, FeatherLIGHT

    • 03/12/2012    

      Well, if you want to step up to the Pump Action Mercedes-Benz there…the action job would turn it into an AMG…

      • 03/12/2012    

        I already have the Ithaca and it definitely needs a better finish (the previous owner failed to maintain the parkerized finish and there was a bit of spot rust on the surface (nothing a but of steel-wool and oil didn’t fix) and it needs a good all-weather coating. I’m not sure how much better you could make this weapon, except for the slipstream. What exactly would you change?
