I believe there are no best gunsmiths, there are simply too many known and unknown to even worry about comparing. I do believe that some marketed better or different to become well known, but doesnt mean they are better gunsmiths. What I looked for was consistancy, price, know their stuff but dont say they are the best, and service. I havent heard of some gunsmiths on here or other sites before though.

    I might as well get my 2 cents in to this thread.

    To me the mark of a good Gunsmith is his desire to make each
    rifle/pistol better than the last, (It may not be possible but he tries)
    and his interest in what the customer wants/expects and then follow
    up on how well the weapon is performing.

    Some times the well known smith loses sight of what made him/hers
    reputation in the first place.

    After all is said and done the customer has the last word and one aw$h!t
    wipes out any attaboys.

    Boy you hit the nail on the head.

    I just ask for the smith to be fair, competant and honest and tell how much it is going to cost (really) and when it really is going to be done.

    I have dealt with enough over the years to learn who builds what I like the way I like and that means a lot to most people and treats me as a valued customer,. Not just the next $ to walk thru the door.
