Thanks!

I'm not sure where you are, but you could talk to Ned at Purcell's Custom Firearms in Orange, VA.

I know it's not the answer to the question you asked, but have you checked the Build it Yourself forum on this site?

It's not hard to do, at all. It does require a bit of investment in tools, but I'm sure you could find someone local that would lend them to you.

I would first check with Rick at TTI on Route 1. Best gunsmith in the Metro Richmond area.

+1000 for Rick. He's on Rt. 1 about 5 minutes north of the old Green Top store. I've used him for my AR and 1911 and his work is top notch. Cool guy to shoot the shit with too.

Another +1 for TTi. Rick is one of the best around. We are lucky that he is in the Richmond area.

TTi = 804.798.8938

TTi up in Ashland is good to go. But I'll also second the recommendation to try to do it yourself, as TTi usually isn't cheap, even for basic things.

If its a new barrel and new bolt, you really could do this yourself.

For a six pack of beer I'd let ya use all my tools to do it yourself if you were in NOVA.

Maybe they started the move early?

This. But I would buy the tools and do it myself. You don't head space an AR. Just swap the barrels and go.

Probly the same building that coles sporting goods was in. The owner of that shop sold it to a guy that changed the name to crossroads outfitters then moved it to where Sodan is/was and ran it into the ground. The owner of Sodan (Charles Sodan) was the smith there and took over the building and changed the name. He is a good guy to deal with and appreciates firearms. A buddy of mine has spoken with him about doing some cerakoting on a upper and lower and he does do it but I have not seen any finished results. He does not keep a large inventory but he does not have a bunch of "sporting goods" either it is a straight up gun shop much like rick at TTI
