Good Colorado Gunsmith

Can someone recommend a good gunsmith in the Denver, CO area? I want to get a muzzle brake put on my rifle, and maybe a few other things. Has anybody here used High Country Gunsmithing?


Thanks

How's about Longmont CO???

Ray Montgomery was recommended to be by Dan Lilja.

He did an outstanding job rebarreling mine. Nice work, nice bead blast, nice blue. Shoots outstanding....

If you want truly top shelf work in Colorado then Mark Chanlynn, Owner of Rocky Mountain Rifle Works in Longmont is your answer.

Best barrel maker in the world as far as I'm concerned.

David Sullivan of West Wind Rifles does great work. I've had him do work on two rifles and the work was outstanding. He is in Erie, CO.

David specializes in building long-range and national match course competitive rifles. He has been a competitive high-power shooter since 1969 and understands the shooter's needs in a rifle. In business since 1977, David worked for Krieger before starting his own shop.


As far as High Country Gunsmithing goes, I would have to give a big thumbs down. I brought a Remmy 700 to them to have a trigger job done. My rifle sat there for 4 months, and they never worked on it. I called a few times, and it was always "we should have it done ... We've had a bunch of ...". I picked my rifle up 5 months after I gave it to them, and they didn't even seem surprised that they did nothing, other than accumulate dust.

Re: Good Colorado Gunsmith

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I had an appointment with High Country today and he didn't even show up. So it looks like I'm not bringing my gun to him. If anybody else has any other gunsmith suggestion please let me know. Thanks everyone.
