    Brimstone Gunsmithing in Camas (inside the Safe-fire range) has just recently done quite a bit of work on several friends Glocks and ARs, and they were extremely pleased with the results.

    Velzey is really good, hard to not want him to do something! Brimstone is also good, but a drive! Don't know of any others still around!

    If i cant find anyone local i will most likely go through DPcustoms or CreativeCustoms. I would rather support local gunsmiths tho, and As long as i can find someone local who can do the milling/porting, then i will have sur-tac do the Cerakote.

    So ive tried to contact @Velzey a few times with no reply, and briefly talked to @gophishhhh but haven't been able to lock anything down. I didnt think this was guna be so difficult. Im a firm believer in supporting local businesses, but looks like i may have to ship my Slides to an out of town shop. :s0092:

    PM sent

    Being on my mobile device 99% of the time, and on NWFA I cannot see when someone mentions my name.
    I need to edit my signature line to include my direct contact info.

    If you get a chance post up some photos of what you would like done, or email them to me.

    I think in your profile you can check a box to get emails when you get alerts.

    @Velzey has done a cut & thread on an AR barrel (most EXCELLENT work), and is currently doing a full restore on a USGI 1911A1 for me w/ a full strip-down and re-park, trigger job and new springs, as well as erasing some "bubba-gump" "checkering" some dope attempted with a file on the front strap then hid the failure with Pachmar wrap-arounds... NO, it wasn't me who did it! o_O

    Velzey recently had my two High Powers and my Arsenal AK and knocked it out of the park with all of them. I'd recommend him in a heartbeat.

    Where is the green with envy face?:D

    Velzey and I have communicated about some possible work on my 1911 and refinsh work on a few other guns - I'm just waiting for some funds and I figure some of my not so nice guns will be my safe queens:cool:.

    He is very friendly and extremely easy to communicate with.

    Always my first thought when I think about needing anything done to a gun I can't do myself for sure;).

    Another happy customer of Brimstone Gunsmithing. David is great, and easy to work with. Work is top tier, very easy to recommend.
