Is anyone here a gunsmith or can recommend a gunsmith that can cut and re-thread a shotgun barrel? Tap and thread a shotgun receiver? Hydro dip a stock? Anyone have this kind of work done recently? How much would I be looking at? Thanks!

recommend checking w Rapture Tactical in Ashland.
They are partnered w a Vet who does smithing, has for many years.
I have not personally had him do any work, but he has good rep and has helped me w specific guidance in the past.

Rapture Tac are good people, Christian run business.
I believe they offer some wrapping/stippling type services.

Just called them thank you. Iím going to call a few more places. Hoping I can do better than $40 per hole for a tap and thread. $160 sounds high, but I havenít had any work done in a long time.

Avoid Hall Precision in Fredericksburg. Lousy work and worse communication.

Ashland firearms. Be very patient on getting the work done but it will be right
