    Anyone recommend a gunsmith in the Portland area? I inherited some firearms that need a little cosmetic makeover, and my Model 70 .243 has been having issues with loading a new round jamming rifle.

    I've called quite a few and left messages over the past couple of months, but never got one call back.

    I have heard very good things about Allison & Carey, on 17311 SE Stark St, Portland. They have been around a long time. Also, Rich's Gunsmith in Donald (down by Wilsonville).

    If you are not in a hurry, try Bob at Oregon Timberwolf LLC 15 minutes south of Oregon City. He's retired Law Enforcement, knows his stuff, and very reasonable pricing. He's worked on my Colt rifle and my Sig handgun. The quality of his work is excellent, he just has a backlog (currently), so my most recent job has taken him 5 weeks+. Still highly recommend him.

    Allison & Carey has done work for me on more than one occasion. Always quality work, reasonably priced, and ahead of schedule. On separate occasions I had an AR barrel shortened, a deer rifle barrel free floated, and headspace checked on an AR. All three jobs were completed quickly and at good prices. Other people have reported a few negative experiences, but all of mine have been positive. I suspect it has to do with the customer's attitude.

    Put a nice 3" scratch on my new $600 manners stock and still charged me $100 for the install. Would love to have more options locally for someone competent who also cares about being meticulous.

    Rich's Guns in Donald does excellent work. They took my norinco 1911 and did an incredible job on it. Note some of the work was repairing prior work from shooter service center in St. John

    I went to Rich's in Donald once, years ago, and found that they did good work but were expensive (maybe just for me--maybe they saw me coming a mile away?). Marcus of Al's guns in Verboort did similar and very good work for quite a bit less. Les at Clark County Gunsmithing in Vancouver is excellent and also charges low prices.

    Next exit past the rest area, about 3 or 4 miles south of Wilsonville and turn at the TA travel center exit and turn right at end of the off ramp and thhen go about 3 miles to the left you will see Donald across the field there is a 4 way turn left there.
    Riches is very good. Allison & Carey is too but you might wait a yr for the work.

    This summer I also used Revelation Firearms in Aloha. I had them cerakote an Argentinian mouser. They did a good job; were a little on the spendy side, but I liked the owner. His shop is something to see.
