I have a standard M1A, I want to have the GI chrome lined barrel cut down to 18". Orion7 tells me they don't work on M14s anymore so I need a good Smith, Any recommendations?
Thanks in advance for any replies!

Ron Smith at Smith Enterprise.

He should be able to do what you'd like to have done for a reasonable price.

Ditto, Ron's the M1, M1A/M14 man....., ask him to work his "trigger magic" too while it's there as it's worth it.

I saw where Ron charges $250.00 to shorten a USGI barrel to 18".

I would wait untill Wilson Barrels starts shipping new barrels next month.

I'll pass on the Wilson barrel, I want to keep the barrel chrome lined.

Ron did some M1A work for me, I was VERY happy with the work. Fast turn-around time also.

I can only assume you didn't see an earlier post.

Wilson is coming out with NEW CHROME LINED BUSH & STD BARRELS IN OCTOBER.

Give George Gardner at Ga Precision a call he did some work on my M1A and it shoots nice. Plus he's reasonably priced and he has good turn around times.
