Need good precision gunsmith

I just got back from a Krgyzstan hunt, where my rifle took a bad fall when a horse slipped and fell into a ravine, resulting in what I suspect to be a bent barrel.
So far I have spoken to Mike Bryant in Texas, who is happy to do the work (rebarrel) quickly enough for me to do while I visit a friend, but if I don't get to Texas to visit a friend, Bryant is a little out of the way to get to.
I might be going to New York for a business trip, so are there any good smiths in that area who could do the work over a few days max while I am there?
I woud consider another major city, providing I can get a cheap flight there and then carry on to NY.
You ask why not get it done in here in Italy? Because the only smith in the entire country who I trust with it and who initally built the rifle would take no less than 9 months and charge a ridiculous amount of money for an imported barrel and the labour.
Btw, the Ibex hunt was a great success, but I will post a full report once I get a bit more time.

Re: Need good precision gunsmith

i don't know of anyone off hand that can do the work that quickly at the moment. The smith I use who does exceptional work is pretty backed up for a while. You can look him up on www.losokcustomarms.com

He does great work, but I don't know if he'd be able to give you the turn around you're looking for.
