Over the past couple years, I’ve gotten to know master gunsmith and author Fred Zeglin, owner of 4d Reamer Rentals. In this story, I wanted to let you all get to know him by means of this extended interview!

Resources from the Story

4D Reamer Rentals

4D Reamer Rentals is run by Fred Zeglin, master gunsmith and gunsmithing instructor.

From the 4D Reamer Rentals Website:

We have over 1600 chamber reamer rentals in stock and ready to ship. We also rent headspace gauges and many other gunsmithing tools. Our tools are well maintained and inspected before and after each rental to assure you receive the highest quality gunsmithing tools. Our staff has over 35 years of professional gunsmithing experience, setting us apart from the competition.

To locate items that interest you click on the headings in the menu at the top of the page. When you find a Chamber Reamer or Gunsmithing tool that suits your needs, just click directly on the listing. Or search by keyword in the window above.

Headspace gauges are rented by selecting the combination of reamers and/or gauges you need from the dropdown list in the red box that reads “Add Reamers/Gauges” when you’re looking at a specific caliber reamer. We aim to keep it simple.

All rentals are for seven (7) days in your hands. With shipping time, tools are expected back in our facility in seventeen (17) calendar days. If you request overnight shipping, the tools should be back in 14 calendar days.
