    Long story short version:
    I have two Rugers (SP101 & GP100). Both need the cylinder throats reamed. I figure I'll get the forcing cones chamfered too. I need recommendations, leads, etc... on a good local gunsmith in the greater PDX/Vancouver area. Especially anyone you know who's done this before.
    I've tried a couple that I'm familiar with, they don't do it. I really don't want to ship these, since time is an issue.

    Thanks!

    I've been recommended to Clark county gun smithing by a friend for some other work.

    I've not had it done but they seem nice and knowledgable.

    I'd also be interested in borrowing or renting a .358" reamer and pilots. If anyone has or knows of some?
