This guy has done work for me just last week ... his turn around time is pretty quick.
Had an AR - 10 threaded for a suppressor in 3 days. He also installed a new gas block and muzzle brake same day when I got all the parts in.

I've never used him, but he got high recommendations from a guy I know that is a gun nut.
