    The title pretty much says it all. I'd like to install Smith & Wesson Tru-Dot® Night Sight on my S&W K frame and would like to find a gunsmith in the area with a good reputation. This is fully adjustable rear with red dot front.

    If Donald is close enough go to Rich's. Its only a short run north of woodburn.
    Lee and his folks do good work.

    Yeah and Lee is a good strong pro 2nd supporter that actually gets out and into the politicians faces.
    His dad was a gunsmith for half a century at his shop in lake grove. Al was a good guy too :)

    Todd Koonce from Koonce Custom Gunworks in Salem is a reputable Salem area gunsmith. He does fine work and seems to have competitive prices.

    Well, I went to Rich's to see about installing an XS Sight on my M66. They seemed on the ball, checked out the proper sight with a call to XS.

    That's the last I've heard from them. I called about two weeks after my visit and the person on the phone did not seem to have the answers. No call back.

    I really need contact from the vendor whether the news is good (part just arrived) or so-so (it will be 6 weeks before the manufacturer does another production run on that item).:(

    After doing a quick google search, it looks like Todd is on a holiday hours schedule this week which isn't surprising. Also, he has recent comments on his facebook page so, yes, he is still in business.
