I know that Kevin at AAC is no longer threading barrels. Who else, locally, is threading and how much?

I've had Neal Spruell in Oakwood thread two for me and he did a perfect job on both. Price on an AR10 barrel that I pulled was $60 to cut to 22" and thread.

On a Remington 700, he charge $120 to pull and thread.

If you want someone of a higher profile, Jered at Patriot Arms can do it. I haven't had him thread anything before, but he turned my thread protector down and he knows his way around a lathe.

Somebody IM me some phone numbers. I have a heavy 10/22 barrel that needs threaded.

Book- did you get your 1911 back from him? Did you have time to check out his single actions?

Sorry to get your thread OT chainsaw. If you happen to use Neal, let him know that you heard about him from Mark and me (Bill). Hopefully, if he knows there is work coming to him from Arfcom, it'll be to our benefit.

So you broke down and bought a bolt gun? Pics?

Can you elaborate? I've bought stuff there before, but never had an issue with them, other than their prices are a bit high.

I've had work done by both Doc and Neal. Neal did an awesome job on my Ruger single action. I've considered letting him do a 1911 9mm Springfield for me. Doc has done several 1911's for me and his work is truly first rate. Just gotta be prepared for the wait. Doc will never give you an estimated time for completion and it seems as if you ask....it only takes longer. But when you finally do get it.......it is a piece of art that is hard to shoot and get dirty. Doc is pretty fast on barrel thread turnarounds. Doc also has a partner that is Class3-GMan Weaponry. Doc builds his AOW's.

I took my stainless, enhanced Delta Elite in there (David's Gunroom) on a recomendation to have a new trigger and ejector installed, and have new medallions mounted in a set of Navidrex grips. The ejector and trigger were installed fine, but Rusty mangled the new grips. Looked like he used a dull end mill on them which chipped them up badly, and epoxied the medallions into them off center, off angle and not flush, with hardened epoxy squeezed up around and over the medallions. When I complained, the owner of the shop (David I guess) had the nerve to try and tell me all Colt pistols coming from the factory looked like that. He was a real piece of work. I had to argue with this jerk for a half an hour, making him pull out a new Colt as an example, before he offered to buy them for $20 (I paid $50 for them). Basicly I ate the cost of a set of Navidrex grips and medallions.

BB, sorry to hear that you've had a bad experience. I have had alot of work done in the past by Rusty with no problems whatsoever. My buddy just had a Kimber reworked by him as well, and the checkering that he did (in addition to the other things)is superb and didn't cost him that much.
With the exception of the occasional gunsmithing, I never buy anything from Davids because as Kletz pointed out-there prices are high and I think to the point of being outrageous.
