I need a top-shelf gunsmith to chamber a new barrel (6.5-.284). I normally use Greg Tannel (Gre-Tan Rifles) but he is backed up more than two years. Any recommendations? TIA
turn around time can be an issue, more likely with the better known names.
I've used Jkob and he does great work. Karl and Redneck have also done projects for me; both are great.
I've also used David Christman in Delhi, LA. He's a Guild member and does great work. He retired from the West Coast and returned to LA. David's turnaround is often pretty good, but would call any smith and ask how backed up they are. That's generally how I decide which way to go.
