    Much to my surprise I found out my local master gunsmith can no longer drill and tap guns for installing a scope. In 2016, Obama signed an Exec Order making that service fall under manufacturing a firearm. Most small gunsmith apparently are not going to get the license to manufacture and deal with all the added paperwork that goes along with it.

    Anyone know a smith within an hour of Richmond who can do it?

    John Myer, Custom Gunsmithing in Boyce VA. Little more than hour, but is a top LR smith too. Jeff Walker, at Walker Custom Gunsmithing in Culpepper and he is top LR smith. Ask Jeff about their monthly steel target matches out to 1200

    Thanks for the tip. I am looking for a LR rifle builder in the spring so I will keep them in mind for that as well.
