    I'm looking for recommendations for gunsmiths to work on CZ and Sig Sauer handguns, barrel fitting, minor part replacements kind of work.

    Velzey in estacada is highly regarded.
    Don't know if he works on that stuff, but might be worth a try.
    He's a member here

    Rich's Guns in Donald Oregon is good. I know Lee and used to work with his Dad.
    He runs a good clean shop.

    It seems like Rich's has quite the good reputation, thank you :)
    I'll call them and see if they do the types of jobs I'm looking for.

    Second recommendation for NWFA member @Velzey. He's out of Estacada. You might send him a PM and ask about your repairs.

    Grant Cunningham is the best, but I think he only works on Dan Wessons. Might have expanded though. Great guy to work with!

    Another vote for Velzey! He did a STELLAR job cutting down and threading an 16" AR15 barrel for me that was on a complete upper. He dismantled it, machined it down, then reassemble it.

    You'd never know it didn't come from the factory as an 11.5" specimen. I have already run several hundred rounds through it, and it functions FLAWLESSLY.

    I'm going to hire him to restore and parkerize a bubba-ized 1911A1 back to USGI configuration in a couple more weeks from now!

    I know my way around Dan Wesson's, and I'm one of the few around here that can retime your Colt Python!

    I also know my way around Cummins diesels! o_O But I don't like smelling like stove oil anymore!:)
