    I am in need of a Gunsmith in the Central Oregon area. So, if you know of one that you would trust with your most prized rifle, please let me know who they are.

    Thanks,
    Ray

    Gunsmiths in central Oregon are a very specialized breed. Either post specifically what you need done, or if you're not comfortable with that, feel free to PM me, and I'll give you the contact information for the best for what you need. I've had work done by most of the gunsmiths in the area, and being a gunsmith myself (sans shop at the moment), am very particular as to who I let play with my toys...

    Let's see, I have a Rem 7400 that is not feeding correctly and trigger adjustment, a Savage 111f that I want to replace the barrel ( which I have), a Marlin 99 M1 that needs the front sight replaced, an AR-30 in 338LM that I want rechambered in 338LM AI and Coated (colors to be discussed) and trigger adjusted, plus several that need to be recrowned.

    I live in Prineville.
    I have a Sig P238 and the trigger is a little heavy. Would like a 4 1/2 to 5# pull.
    Is there a qualified Smith that would or could do a trigger job and approximate cost?
    Thx

    Scott Springer is a crapshoot. I've seen some of his work that is very good. Other stuff I wonder how it made it out of his shop, it was so poor. Tom Nitcher at Sun Mountain is good, but haven't seen much of his work on pistols. But he is honest enough to turn down the work if he can't do it...

    I knew of Springer. I'll get ahold of Tom and see what he has to say.
    Thanks
