    What I want performed should be pretty simple and straightforward for a competent smith. I have a 10" TC Contender barrel that I want to cut to 6.5" and of course will need to be recrowned and refinished at the muzzle.

    If anyone can recommned a shop that can perform the work l would appreciate it!

    Try Jeff Hicks from Hicks designs. he goes by Celt at sniperhide forums and snipers paradise,He is rated as one of the top rifle smiths in the country and he also does work on handguns.I had a few rifles worked by him and he did excellent work and quick turn around.

    Here is a third vote for Bryan Cosby.

    This man does outstanding work. What is even more interesting to me is he owns and runs the gunsmithing business started by his great-great granddaddy in 1858. Talk about a family business!!!
    { I may be off a year or two in that date but the business does pre-date the civil war ]
