If a gunsmith builds a good rifle for you, then most of the time they become "the best" gunsmith you know. I know many good gunsmiths, but only a few will I have work on my rifles.

Krieger Barrels and Scalpel Arms. Only times I've ever had firearm work done in which there was easy communication, friendly attitude, and the quote time matched the delivery time. Krieger told me 3 months and they delivered in 3 months. Scalpel Arms told me 2 weeks and they delivered in 2 weeks.

Almost any other time I've had work done it has been a bit of a hassle with communication and quote times. Including with one of the previously mentioned gunsmiths listed here I've had a 3-4 week quote turn into 7 months with zero proactive communication and a 2-3 week quote turn into 6 months with zero proactive communication. I don't believe in breathing down guys necks so I typically don't reach out unless its getting out of hand. Fool me once, twice, but never again.

Chad,

you see a wide array of rifles and custom builds.

Which ones are consistently good in your experience?
