I live in the Phoenix Arizona area, been here a couple of years. Does anybody know of a good gunsmith in the area. I live on the north side of town, so I could even go up towards Prescott if I have to.

What sort of gunsmithing are you looking for? Someone who does really excellent work cutomizing Garands might not be the best choice to tune the trigger on your Anaconda.

I don't know anyone up in your area but here are two suggestions for you

For rilfes (especially semi-auto like ARs, AKs, FAL, etc) I highly recommend AZEX. Excellent customer service and work. They are good people. For small jobs they will work while you wait.

AZEX
663 W. 2nd Ave. #12
Mesa, AZ 85210
480-507-0200

The only gunsmith I have been to for handgun work was at Caswells in Mesa. There are two gunsmiths that work there. There is a guy who works on Saturdays who does a lot of 1911 work. Sorry, but I can't remember his name. He fitted new sights and a firing pin retainer on my Kimber. I don't have thier number on hand but they are in the phone book.

Hope that helps.

I have a Savage pre WW-II 30-06. (made in the late 20's to prior to 1940 is my best guess) It was my relatives gun, and before it was given to me they had a gunsmith do some work on it and test fire it, etc. However, I have owned it for a few years, and I would like a gunsmith to go through it and give me an appraisal of its condition. I would like to start shooting it, and I would like to get it ready for next years hunting season. I would like to see what type of life it has left in its barrel, and determine what type of modern rounds I can and cannot shoot through it. Since It was damaged at one time and some parts were replaced, (prior to me recieving the gun) I would feel better having a different set of eyes on it prior to me using it much. Thanks for the help.
