I spoke today with the fellers over at K2 Sports in Richardson. Seem like great folks and i'll probably do some business with them. However........

Can any of you Dallas guys recommend a good AR Smith in the East Dallas/Garland/Mesquite area??

Just ordered a Jewell trigger and I'm too timid to try to install it myself.
Thanks, Skipper Miller

Nope, sorry.
Only John at K2 gets my vote.

You're an oak, you can handle the trip.

Lake Fork to Richardson is not that bad. I have to drive from Canton to Richardson to visit K2 Sports. ROFL

RedGoat, I agree 100%!! Look up the meaning of my handle. Quercus MICHAUXII. Botanical /Latin designation fot the Swamp Chestnut Oak tree. We have the state champion on our farm. Biggest acorns of any oak. Up to golf ball size.....

I plan on visiting K-2 in Richardson. Does he work on benchrest rifles? O/U shotguns? Is he a 1911 specialist? Is he a master at stock work?

If he does ALL these things, then you are correct. I really need to visit him. However, if he does not specialize in all these disciplines, maybe I need to keep asking for other 'smiths in East Dallas, Garland or Mesquite.

Thanks for your input...

ROFLMAO. Why do you think I made the comment in the first place? I also read your profile, hit google for a Fishing guide named Miller in the Lake fork area.

Want me to tell you your phone number as well, Skipper?

Sure, send me an email and I'd be delighted to send you my phone number! Will take you fishing too-- well, as soon as deer season is over... I've acquired a new Marlin 1895GS .45-70 that needs to be christened!

Another vote for John in Richardson. I drive from Grand Prairie up to his place.

Just got off the phone wife Lew Tippie's wife, Jeanine. Were discussing a target barrel that Lew built for me. And what bipod and adaptor.

Anyhow, she mentioned John at K-2. Said she met him and his wife at Gunstock and mighty impressed. Seems to be the consensus.

Guess I need to meet this guy!

he put a trigger in my AR, did some long gun work on my 700, mouted a light on my custom kimber, and know many people he does shotgun work for. Fully squared away!
