The smith I use is John Taylor in Washington State. John has a website: John Taylor Machine or http://www.johntaylormachine.com/ He is very very good. Turn around time is great and prices are fair. He has worked on some of my projects that no one else would do. That’s how I came across him the first time.sjhguns said:I would be interested in who you get to make the barrel blank fit the action, and how much.
Thinking of a similiar project of putting a heavier octagon barrel on a 1895.
