Looking for someone to do some work on my Weatherby 7MM that isnít a bunch of old grumpy guys at Carters Country or Collectors and is reasonable. Need a muzzle brake, barrel float and new scope mounted and bored sighted. I am in the Memorial Area. Any recommendations?

Vandenburg customs. Hands down my favorite gunsmith I’ve dealt with and does fantastic work.

Some great shops listed. I'll add one to your list, MG arms in spring.

I've never used any of these listed but have never heard anything bad about them.

If needing custom work for my personal rifles, I’d choose Pete Pieper all day long

NEVER Vandenberg. He buggered up a 1911 for me so badly I had to replace the barrel.

GL Gun Works is who I used last and did a full rework of an older Mohawk 243. I was pleased with the work.

Pete and Aaron are both great guys with incredible talent. I have had rifles built by both. I can't compare apples to apples because I gave Pete better parts, but both rifles shoot amazing. I like that Pete is a fellow bow hunter and we have some other hobbies in common. He gets my work know. Having said that, I would give Aaron 5 stars as well.
