All I need is a recoil pad mounted on a shotgun. The stock needs to be shortened a bit for a different LOP and then the pad ground down to fit.

Anyone have a recommendation?

Sonora Institute. I believe they have tuition assistance.

Bumping this. I'm also wondering who is a good gunsmith in knoxville these days.

I only knew two that were truly qualified, school trained.  One retired, and the other moved to Colorado a few years ago to look after his ailing mother.  Both are sorely missed…

We have lots of shade-tree gunsmiths, but very few with full shops, lathes, and the experience to turn concentric barrels/properly crown barrels. Cree coating is also hit or miss in the Knoxville area.

If you can’t find anyone local, I am in Tennessee and I have an FFL. I actually just put a recoil pad on a browning  a couple weeks ago for a guy. Doesn’t seem like this is a real common request anymore, but I can do it.

I have a machine shop, and I can thread barrels, drill and tap for scope mounts, profile barrels, etc. I do some bluing and parkerizing(my tanks aren’t all that big, so I’m a little limited as to size). My website is a work in progress, but it does have a few pictures of some of my work.

I was in his shop a couple of weeks ago. Very nice and knowledgeable guy. Very clean and orderly shop. If it comes to Sigs and Glocks, he knows his stuff and has lots of guns, parts and accessories for them.

Knoxville Tactical used to have a gunsmith.  Don't know about now.

https://www.facebook.com/knoxvilletactical/  They don't have a website.  Just off I-75 at the Emory Road exit.

I was in there the other day picking up a transfer and I asked about a gunsmith. They said they have 2 "armorers". I had read on Facebook their gunsmith moved away or something.

Elite Custom Guns in Seymour.
He's done a number of things for me - including a recoil pad install - and always been extremely happy.

Anyone know of someone with bluing tanks? I came into a k31 project gun that the barrel/receiver needs rebluing.

I second Vids Custom. He mounted two recoil pads for me on an old SxS and a Red Label. Top notch dude and does great work.

Another vote for VID. Chris has done several transfers and builds for me, always top notch.
