Anyone know one? Preferably one that isn't scared of a Mosin Nagant?

I find it hard to believe that I live in the great state of Texasd and have to send my receiver to Florida to get two holes drilled and tapped.

Florida is just a guy I found....what surprises me is that I have to put it in the mail at all. Texas is a gun culture. I would think I could find a local GS

I tried both of them. Benny wouldn't touch it (said old steel is too hard(if it was easy would it be worth $100/hour??)) and Glen has a year waiting list (so he said)

You might check with this gentleman....

I've met him in person but have had zero dealings with him....

There is a really good and inexpensive guy in Brownsville; Chuck Fredieu at "Chuck's Guns" on Paredes Line road, very near Boca Chica
Boulevard.

Chuck is a machinist / gunsmith, who built competition pistols for the US Navy's pistol team for years. He is a dealer for GLOCK, S&W, Beretta, Benelli, Bushmaster, Colt, etc.
