Default Anyone know a gunsmith around SLO that can drill my barrel/FSB?

Hey all,

I am in need of gunsmith that can drill out my taper pin holes for my DD barrel and FSB in the San Luis Obispo are. I tried some of the online gunsmith finders and did not turn up anything local. If there isn't anyone around here that can do it would you guys know of someone in the Fresno area that could?

If anyone happens to know a price estimate and the probable turn around time that would be awesome.

Thanks for any help you guys can offer, Jon.

Can you ship just the barrel as the shipping is only $4.90 each way.
I am in Fresno county (Clovis CA.)
Just email at gunsmithing@live.com a photo of the barrel and pin and I will email a price for the work.

Thanks for the offer, Dave, I will deifinitely keep it in my. Another calgunner pm'd me on a local smith. I gave him a call already and he is going to take a look at on Tues. If that falls through, or the price seems unreasonable, I will shoot you an email.

Thanks, Jon.

His name is Ray and he works at Four Season a couple of days out of the week. That is where I contacted him today. However, he works the majority of his time a The Outdoorsman in Grover Beach and that is where most of his gunsmithing equipment is. I am heading over there on Tues. to get a quote from him.

If your other options dont work out, I can mount, drill, ream your FSB with proper reamer for taper pins, to within 1 MOA or less to your rear sight mechanical zero. I charge $75 for this service, shipped back to you. A little more than some, but it WILL be zeroed to your receiver/barrel combo. Can also mix/match and pin previously mounted barrels and sight bases. 20 + years M16 NRA service rifle experience.
Thanks,
Ken
