Cost for Blueprint? Know any good California Gunsmiths?

I'm looking for a general number for this. I'll probably look at having a Lilja barrel matched to gun since they'll be doing this but I'd like to know what type of cost I'll be looking it.

Also looking if anyone has any recommendations on any good gunsmiths in the Northern California area

If I'm not mistaken Jerry Rice is in northern CA and is known for great work.

Generaly the prices I see for an action blue print are $150-$200 for the basic job , if you have the feed rails opened up for say an Ultra mag or the machine work done for a Wyatt's box thats gonna cost a little bit more. Also if you have the bolt sleeved that generaly run about another $100

any reason you want a smith in CA or are you just wanting to have sombody you can drive an meet?

Personally, I'd be using one of the great gunsmiths that help this forum to be what it is... Great! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I don't know what type of work you're looking to get done and can't give you a personal recomendation, as I have not had any work done, personally by these guys, though they were recommended to me. I always used two gunsmiths, one past, one retired. I hate it when that happens!

Jerry Rice - norcal precision

He is in American Canyon half way to SF just off 80

Gary Thiry

Gary had a parts & accs store downtown for years
then hired a smith & moved shop (don't know who)
He is the smith of record for Badger Johns Guns

Thomas Mantzoros

Where in Sac are you?

What type of hunting do you do?


Good Luck

Thanks for the replies...

It's going to be an accurization for my 300 Ultra Mag with a new barrel and stock... I'm trying to convince myself I don't need it done until after this season but it's so hard to convince myself of that [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] I was just hopign to find some Smiths in the area to check them out before I started going out of state!
