Someone at the new local gunstore recommended him. Said he does it in his spare time, for a lot of their customers. I guess he is gunsmith certified, but sells cellulars for a day job. Either way, the guy at the gun store is very knowledgeable and I trust him, as he showed my some of the blacksmiths work. (Saiga 308 converted)

Romy G kits can be great shooters if built right, and lookers as well if the metal and stock is finished well...

I love showing mine off:

I'd ask to see some examples of his work that actually consists of rivet work he has done. Make sure he doesn't do screw builds or welding of the receiver to the trunnion. You can't compare apples to oranges and that is what you do if you compare a kit build to a SAIGA .308 conversion as there is no riveting involved in the conversion.

Any home builder with the proper tools can do an excellent build, sadly some garage gunsmiths may take needless shortcuts.

Can't hurt anything to see some of his work, but the gunstore worker did have 2 ak74's built by this gentlemen, which he felt were done correctly. But I see your point. Thanks!
