Looking for a smith in Texas Houston

I have a model 700 Remington in 280 , wood stock 20' barrel I worked out on a trade rifle is in great shape , what I I want to do is rebarrel it to 280 AI like to go with Lija or Krieger , looking for a local smith to do the action trueing and then I would take care of the stock and trigger work , any ideas on smiths in the area ?


Thanks sr

Pete Piper @ Precision Barrel Work in Hempstead. He does great work and turns it around fast.
