New England Custom Gun Service is a unique blend of importer, manufacturer and service outlet for higher-grade rifles and shotguns. Many of the company’s items are of German manufacture and are particularly fitting for Africa-bound doubles and dangerous-game guns. But a few of its proprietary offerings, such as its adjustable rear aperture sight machined entirely of steel and designed to mount to the scope ring recesses cut into the bridge of Ruger Model 77 or No. 1 rifles, are reasonably economical and available absolutely nowhere else. Other beautifully made parts include Winchester Model 70-style safety mechanisms for Mauser 98-style rifles, and German-made EAW claw mounts that seem most appropriate for the many German-produced riflescope lines that the company also imports. Many other sights, bases, front sight hoods, beads and more make shopping with NECG a knowledge-expanding experience for those with an interest in classic-style rifles and shotguns.
