Does anyone have any experience with Briley here in Houston doing any gunsmithing? I need to have a brake removed and the barrel recrowned and know they are world famous for their shotgun choke tubes. Any suggestions..

After you get your answer, tell me how to find/contact this 'Briley'.

Briley is on MFGR's row at the Intl Sporting Clays Championship in San Antonio every year. The are very popular with the competitive shooters. I wouldn't hesitate to have them work on anything of mine.

Hey SSD,
What type of work did you need done?

(Most gunsmiths 'round here are so blown away w/ deer season and Xmas gifts they aren't even taking calls.)

Refinish (Parkerizing I think) a 1911 I got this pass weekend. I'm not in a rush.

They did good work on the Lovely Bride's Beretta 682. No problems with Briley. I talked to Chuck Webb but all the folks there are friendly.

I've had Briley perform some action work on revolvers. Their work is high quality, but I think they trade quite a bit on their name. They're a little expensive for their services. For shotgun work, Carlson's of Atwood, Kansas and Chokeworks of Little Rock, Arkansas are considerably cheaper. For rifle work, Simmons Gun Repair (also a top flight shotgun outfit) of Olathe, Kansas and McMillan Barrels of Bryan, Texas get the nod.
