there not in your area but they are fast and one of the best there is any where. www.rwhart.com it took less than 30 days after the barrels came in to get my work done and back to me.i had a local smith do some work a good while back and it took close to a year.close is not always faster thanks,keith
Might want to go over to benchrest central alot of gunsmiths around your area that do work for those guys I know SGY and think Dorsey is around you somewhere but can get there # over there. I'm kind of like you want to see the work hard to see over a phone. Too many gunsmith that are living legends in there own mind. Good luck.
Paul Dorsey is in Waxahachie,Texas and does excellent work in a reasonable amount of time.Speedy Gonzales is in Roanoke,Texas and as described earlier is an ego maniac who will take forever and charge like crazy for standard work.Both have done work for me and Dorsey will do work again while Speedy won't.
Lynn, I've had acouple dealing with Speedy and he has always been fair. My last was a 30x47 hunter BR rifle. I was thinking of sending acouple trigger over to Dorsey to have him make those change to them. I've never had any gunsmithing done by him but from everything I've hear is is a pretty good guy. Now as to what a guy charges. Most gunsmith around where I live charge appr $165 for a muzzle break can take up to 30 days, guy about 50 miles south charges $80. and turn around time 2 days. The guy I use just increased his chamber price $50. and that increase makes him the highest around here for a chamber job so do you stay or jump ship? I guess his ego is to raise prices. Well good luck.
