I'm looking for a smith that can swap an upper receiver for me. The upper will be stripped and the gas tube removed. Just need someone to put it in a vice and swap the receivers (flat top for A2) and cost less than the tools for the job.

Thanks.

Up to your place if I have to , but I figured I could get this little job done locally when I go into the big city.

Thanks.

"Next victim."

J/K, I don't know Don Norris, I just thought Orygun's line was funny.

Don Norris should be able to fix you up. He has worked on a few rifles for me. He'll take
care or you.

Thanks folks. I'll shoot Don a line. I'm waiting until I get all the parts in before I'm ready to do this job.

Also may want to try Roger at Revelation Arms in Aloha.

After reconsidering everything I'm going to invest in the receiver vice block and the barrel wrench. Midway has the two for less than $60. and there may be more jobs like this in the future.

Thanks everyone.

Always a good plan Hoppy, if you need any help the Troubleshooting Forum is a click away.

Hey RickM have you ever been to Revelation Arms and visited Roger? If so how the hell do you keep his pack of Rotts from chewing on your nuts? I had to explain to my girlfriend why I had drool all over the front of my shorts when I got out of that place.

I have used both Don Norris & Roger at Revelation Arms, and both are good guys. Roger was the only gunsmith that would permanently attach my AK-74 break on my SAR-1.

No other gunsmith in the Portland metro area would touch my AK because they do not understand the BS ATF laws. They also looked down on me like some kind of freak when I mentioned AK-47!

Been at Roger's place several times. Never had a problem with the dogs. His,like all other dogs seem to like me. Guess they figure I'm a nice guy or are'nt a threat to them. Roger really is a good guy to do business with.
