X2. I'm not sure how much that would cost, but from what I have seen, the guy has very reasonable prices.

Chris Hawn in Lumberton. I've known him since I was a kid, he and my dad used to build guns together. It takes a while because he is so backed up, but I don't know of anyone better.

This is who I have used to do my stuff, I tried calling Chris hawn to do some stuff for me and was never able to get in touch with him. Glad it happened though because I have been very pleased with Ken.

bump to the top for Ray Perry in Bridge City. well worth the 2.5 hours one way every-time I have a project for him. Been using him since around 2000.

Last Thursday I took my gun to Ray Perry in Bridge City due to the recommendations here.He said it would take a few weeks to skim bed the action,set the trigger to 2lbs,and mount/boresight the scope.He called me this morning and said it was done!Only took him a few days.I would recommend him to anyone who needs gun work done.Gun looks great and prices were very reasonable plus super fast work.I will be going back to him from now on if I need anything else done.Worth the drive to Bridge City.
