    I found Clio's gunsmithing webpage, and after looking at his prices.....75.00 for chambering a barrel....I am wondering if this can be too good to be true. Anyone who has dealt with this Gentleman feel free to add your opinions, positive and negative.
    Thanks Alot.

    Looks like he's been around for awhile. Perhaps others in the area esp those with actual experience will chime in.

    I'm just guessing but the $75 for chambering might just be for that part of the process and I would ask exactly the end cost would be for whatever work you need completed. For instance, I have my rifle re-barreled and my gunsmith charged me $250 for the following. If I use Clio's prices it would go something like this ...

    $ 75 - chamber
    $ 35 - true receiver face
    $ 15 - head space
    $ 35 - cut and crown barrel
    $160
    $ 90 - true and thread barrel
    $250

    Contact him for sure for clarification.

    Good luck!

    It always looked like he broke down every process and priced it for you. But as already said get a verification of what it would be.
