    Hello - Looking for a gunsmith around Washington/Oregon that can swap barrels on an Ak47. Someone I can take my firearm to, not blindly ship it to him. Anybody know someone who's good with these?

    I use revelation arms in Aloha,OR to do all my AK/AR smithing. Roger does a good job and his prices are better than fair.

    Coctailer?

    Are you switching from Demil (used) to Demil or Demil to Virgin?

    A virgin barrel is going to be expensive. :( Stamped receiver or milled? Mac90's can be either.

    What part of Washington are you in? If you are in the puget sound, I have all the tooling to do it yourself. I am in south puget sound...let me know if you want to tackle this on your own.

    Todd Koonce Rocks! He went to the same gun smith school in Colorado and bought all his equipment and machinery from Roger Whitchurch formerly of "Shooter's Mercantile" and now with Weatherby. Highly recommended. He loves black rifles from AK's to HK's to AR's
