My advice would be, don't be so locked into being "too local". In PA you got John Yanek (Schnecksville) EGW (Doylestown) to name just two. Just a wee bit south of you in MD is Alan Marvel. Look at it this way, what's a couple hours when you could spend up to a couple grand?
Attached is a photo from my web site www.pinnacle-guns.com , this was built primarily for competition so there are a few options the the client specifically requested.
It features my radius slide serrations (one of the requests')
30 LPI machine cut checkering
Adjustable Caspian rear sight, fiberoptic front
Nowlin frame, Caspian slide
STI trigger, Nowlin firing components
Brown beavertail, & Kings xtra wide thumb safety
Mark, nice web page Also seem like some decent prices you have. I have been thinking of getting a few things done to my Kimber Custom II SS and I think I may stop up and see you. I am in MD so the trip to PA will not be a big deal for me.
Nice looking work on the firearms you have on your site.
I'm currently working on 6-7 months for full customs (ground up)
But, I always take about two days a week to fit in the smaller jobs, But naturally the type and amount of work and refinishing really dictates an accurate time estimate. 6 weeks seems to be an average for the smaller work.
