    Hello all! I'm a few months away from having everything together for my .270wsm rebuild. I'll be having the action trued/blue printed, as well as having my new Lilja barrel chambered and installed. Does anyone have a recommendation or experience with a reputable gunsmith in the area to do the work? I've got alot of financial and emotional investment in this project. Thanks in advance for any help!

    I had Mark Moffitt the 'smith for Last Frontier LAST FRONTIER CUSTOM GUNS
    build my 338 Edge and it's a tackdriver,
    one of the owners Brian is my co-worker in construction who also does some pretty cool Dura-coat finishes , Mark is very easy to talk to and will do an excellent job with shorter turn around time vs shipping outta state,

    call Mark, Derrick or Brian , they will build your gun and ya won't be dissapointed....
    tell them I sent ya
