Re: Good Rifle Smith

I would like a trigger job, muzzle brake installation (quality job). Perhaps glass bed, set rifle back a turn. That sort of thing.

Re: Good Rifle Smith

Any competant smith can do these chores easily. In fact there are several top quality smiths right here on LRH that can easily do this for you.

Just depends on if you want to use a local smith or ship the rifle out. To be honest most of my customers are out of state.

Good Shooting!!

Re: Good Rifle Smith

go to www.6mmbr.com and look at the recommended gunsmiths. Best in the US and coast to coast. No difference in price from the best to "rest" either.

BH...

That list is only the famous ones... or well known ones... and I know one of them is VERY expensive... a few others are pretty high.... I can think of several as good if not better that never made that list.....

If a guy asks on this board I feel we keep in "on board" there are few very competant smiths right here....


just my .02 could be owrth a $1.50 or nothing all depends on how you look at it....

Re: Good Rifle Smith

Geez I don't think the guy wants a custom BR rifle with a trigger at 6oz. ...just bring it to a local gun shop with good rep or like a gander mountain etc. I'd expect to pay approx $40-50. Bedding would help as well. But just start out with the trigger job and see how it shoots.
