Recommend gunsmith in Nor Cal Sac area

I need a muzzle brake put on and i dont want any old guy with a tap and dye doing it. Any reputable smiths in Northern California. I just figured this would be a good place to ask. Thanks, Mike

    I can't vouch for anybody in Cali but I know a great smith in North Dakota.

    Any particular reason that you don't want to ship it out? their is only one guy thats anywhere close to me that I would trust to machine on my barrel and he's pretty hard to get hold to for work , I think he's pretty much just building a few BR guns and thats it , so without access to a lathe to do the work myself I ship my guns to Nathen Dagley of Striat Shot Gunsmithing. His board handel here is "308nate" , hell for the price of gas its cheaper to ship the gun 2000 miles than to drive 100 !!

    Thats a good point James. Diesel is running $3.15 a gal here. That sucks!!
    I was going to have Nathens brake put on my gun. I guess no better guy to do it then the guy who makes is. I was just hoping to save $60.00 on round trip shipping. Thanks for the reply, Mike
