Mid Atlantic Gunsmith

I live in Annapolis and am in need of a gun builder to put together a mid/long range hunting rifle based on a 7mm Wby action, Lilja barrel and B&C stock. I would like to be able to drive to the individuals shop and talk to him, so am interested in someone located in southern PA, MD, Del, or northern Va. I have no personal contacts that could give me a lead, so I would appreciate a recommendation or other suggestion on how to proceed to find such an individual.

Thanks for the help.

    Eddie Harren is a forum member and a very good gunsmith ( and honest which counts a lot for me) He is about an hour and 15 minutes from you. He fixes all my broke guns and if I build any more rifles he will build them.

    He is usually ranked in the top ten nationally in benchrest with the rifles he builds himself.

    My daughter did not like the trigger on the 40X that another gunsmith had put on it so I had to take it to Eddie to replace it. She liked the new trigger.

    He lives between Rockville and Frederick, a few minutes off of I-270. You can find him on the members list and send him an email or I can give you his email and phone number and/or directions to his shop.

    I'm a sponsor for LRH and I live in Central PA. I'd more than happy to talk with you about doing a custom build for you. My shop name is Montour County Rifles. A link to my website with contact information is in my signature at the bottom. E-mail, call or PM so we can discuss what you'd like.

    Buffalobob - Thanks for the recommendation. Sounds like a top notch 'smith.

    Kevin - Thanks for the comeback. I was hoping for someone a little closer, but will get back to you if I can't find one that isn't too busy.

    There are 3 BR gunsmiths near York, PA: Clarence Hammonds, Bob Green and Sid Goodling. Also, Bill Truitt in Shelbyville, MD might be very close to you.
