Re: Good gunsmith in PA

forgot about hart, he is closest to me. Harrisburg is around 2 hrs, Danville is an hour or so. I have a Savage model 12 VLP that I would like pillar bedded and glass, or is pillar bedding enough? I have read where with the laminates you can run into problems with action screws coming loose and such. It seems to shoot pretty well as is, when I broke in the barrel, most shots even with cleaning were touching or made the same hole bigger at 100 yards. And I would also do any other little accurizing things that would help at the time I do this.

    Kevin Cram here on this site.

    Bruce Baer Baer Custom Rifles has a website

    Mark King King custom rifles

    All three are absolutely top notch LR shooters and builders of LR rifles for over 30 years in some cases.

    go to PA 1000 Yard BR club site and look at their sponsors contact information.

    +1 for Kevin.
    His work, attention to detail and customer service are 2nd to none. I've known him for a long time and never had any issue's. Drive the extra little bit it will be worth it in the end. There something nice about a smith that will actually sit down and talk to you whether you buying a new gun or just having a five minute job done. Try that with the other smith in the area (I won't mention any names) I've been there and mentioned "Savage" or it came up I was not building a new gun and it was like pulling teeth to get any kind of info. Call me crazy but thats the first thing I look at.

    He did all the work to my savage tactical and is in the process of building my custom right now

    For stock work without a doubt go with Joel Russo. His laminates are simply amazing.

    thanks for the responses, Kevin and Joel seem to be highly respected and liked, both have been very helpful thru PM thanks again. Same type of thing as someone mentioned, I want some work done on my savage, then in the future I would like to build a 338 LM or something of that nature.
