    local gunsmith

    I need someone for a small project that I could probably do having seen instructions, but would rather not cuz its a royal pita involving big disassembly in order to replace a mag release button. Any local gunsmith recs?

    I know a guy that does good work, he tried doing it full time, but didn't get enough business to stay with it. He went back to work as a machinist, but probably still does some smithing on the side. He may not be able to get to your project right away, but if you want, I'll send you his #.

    I think Brian at Brian's Pawn does some gun repair. (I took my mom's little old pistol to him, but he didn't think it needed any work. You just can't get ammo for it anymore.)

    I used to use Duckworth in Petal, but from what I understand, he had some family tragedies, and has not taken in any new work since. There is Mike Smith in Purvis that's supposed to be good... [ *disclaimer* I have not used him yet.... ]

    When its in the checkbook, and I get the last of the parts in, I will be taking a rifle to him to work on and assemble for me. Whenever that's done and I get some range time with it to see if it performs as expected, I will pass it on.

    Brian's doesn't do gunsmithing. They referred me to Black Creek Gun Works down in Purvis, but that company stopped doing general gunsmithing this sumkmer, and now only builds custom AR/1911 platforms.

    EFB - please PM me the # of the guy you know.

    Re: local gunsmith

    I decided to go with Scott Strohmeyer, he was the gunsmith for Gander Mountain for the first couple of years after they opened. He came highly recommended. I should be getting my rifle back from him in the next day or so. When I get time to take it to the range, that will tell the tale.
