    I’ve heard good things about Jerry’s gunsmith. He’s in Dallas.

    You don’t want a good gunsmith... you want a GREAT gunsmith.... but @Velzey is in Estacada, and he’s worth the trip. ;)

    I'll second the suggestion for Velzey. He did a great job on an older S&W .38 Special that needed a good cleaning to fix some cylinder binding that my cleaning didn't fix. He did a great job on it and for very reasonable too.

    +1 for @Velzey . He rebuilt my Cimarron 1851 Navy Conversion. The thing is a dream now.

    Also, PM in your box, Velzey. :D

    Kevin has done wonders for me over the years. He’s a very busy man because of his quality of work so wait times can be a bit long, especially this time of year.

    Schit, no need for a smith. All of that can be done with opposable thumbs. If you aren’t moving metal, rebarreling/headspacing, or some trigger work, a 700 is easy to work on. The 700 is the small block V8 of rifles.
