Re: ? gunsmiths

I haven't seemed to find a bad one! I've delt with a couple on this site and been more than pleased. I paid one smith more than what he ask because he did a stellar job. I usually use a gunplumber in Wellsville, Utah. He tried to only charge me $150 for chambering, crowning and fitting the barrel on my action. Then he took my 6mmAI out and fireformed some rounds. He said, "I was going to the range anyway". Not all of his work has been that cheap but he's always been fair.
I bet you could pick any one of the smiths on this site and be happy.

PM me with his name.

If you want my smith's name I can give it to you. Be sure and be clear about what you want done and send a couple dummy round so he can test-feed your action.

Re: ? gunsmiths

The secret is to find the best or the best you can afford and then have an ongoing relationship for future projects. The biggest key is to find out how good one is before spending your $$$$ and that is not as easy as it sounds.

If you spend 30 minutes talking to your potential Smith you should have spent many hours doing the research on said Smith. Always want the as my Smith say's "measure twice cut once" and "never gunsmith on a full bladder" guy! LOL
