I'm looking for recommendations for a local smith to do some barrel work for me (still hitting left with rear sight cranked all the way over). Any suggestions/experiences/recommendations?
The manufacturer is the best bet.
Kesselring in Burlington has a good gunsmith.
Wades in Bellview had one but I think he left.
Check out the highpower guys in your area, they will know the best smiths in the area.
There are not many smiths in WA that specialize in AR's.
If you want to ship it off, Kurts Kustom does great work for good prices.
