I live in Cherokee County but work in Cobb County.  I have the parts to build an 11.5" barrel upper receiver assembly for my M16.  The front sight that I purchased folds and needs to be pinned in place.  I could try to install it, but I don't want to screw it up.  Plus, I've never installed a taper pin before.  Do y'all have a recommendation for a good reasonably priced AR15 gunsmith in the Cherokee, Cobb or north Fulton area who can install a front sight assembly?

I would recommend Shep over at TruPrep, or John or Red at Georgia Firing Line for most things AR related in no particular order.

To prove my trust, GFL has my SP5 for some custom work right now and I let Shep work on my Super Duty...  ; )

I'll go down to GFL.  My business is a few miles north of GFL, so it's an easy trip.

Firearms Training Academy in Woodstock pinned a FSB on for my neighbor recently. I'm glad they did it cause I didn't want to.

Firearms Training Academy isn't in Woodstock.  It's closer to Holly Springs where I live.  On second thought, I'll go by there tomorrow.  They don't have near the traffic that GFL does.  Am I correct to assume they did a good job?  How much does a FSB pinning generally cost?

I like the guy and really like his work but I have a project that is 50% over the estimated time and its not on the bench yet.

Hes a victim of his own success.

I dropped the parts off at Firearms Training Academy.  I'll let y'all know how it turns out.
