    Sportmaster

    So I have a chance to get a sporty very very cheap, the catch is , guy said it mite had froze or sumthin and pushed prop out , so it stripped threads for carrier , can the threads b fixed? Or can a carrier be pinned?

    yes there is a man in Florida who does a bang up job( cannot remember his name) seems like it was around 350? 400 to redo the threads that may not be right either not my favorite case though i have have several in the last decade and a half for my 20XD got to run it to high to get something cooking!!! ive been running a torqmaster with my own cone on it for a good long time keep in mind if it pushed carrier out most like rusted the guts not sure how bad its a gamble any way you look at it

    The Aluminum Doctor. He fixed a couple sporties and a few CLE's for me a few years ago. Did a good job and the turn around was relatively quick. Dunno if he is still around down there.

    For sum reason I hear sportys goin down alot more often than anything else ??
    I can get it so cheap that I think it's worth a shot if case isnt busted or anything , the guy took it to a mechanic long time ago, he said they said , the gears and stuff looked to be in good shape but I dont know anything else. I'll go look and take couple pics after holiday

    The Dr has done quite a few for me and always done a good clean job with a reasonable turn around time.
