    Heys folks, I'm probably using the wrong page, but I am and avid deer hunter . I hunt in California, (blacktails), and albeit I am 65, everyday I p/u my rifle I am just as excited as I was at 12yrs. old.
    I have been fortunate and killed, (I hate the word harvested), many deer.

    Enough, I live in the Bay area of California and I am looking for a good gunsmith. Few and far between, can anyone help? I don't need anything super technical done, ie; a stock shortened and a trigger worked over.
    Thanks and go hunting.

    Re: New Guy, but OLD

    Welcome. If no one responds just post your question one more time under a different title. Lots of people just read the title and don't bother to read much more.

    I've never had any work done by this guy, but I have talked to him and he seems to know his stuff. If I remember correctly he is ex LE.

    Contacting Nor-Cal Precision, Jerry Rice, and our Webteam


    Good luck.

    Good luck with your search for a decent gunsmith in the bay area. There are a few but I have never been happy with the work that they do. Scopes that fall off and other such nonesense.

    I have a buddy that does stock work and trigger jobs for friends. He is super picky so it will come back perfect. We have done several bedding jobs together and they have all come out real well. He doesn't do machine work for other people.
    Send me a pm and i will forward his information to you if you are interested. He does a lot of mauser work. He lives in the north bay.
