Breck Gorman is the person to contact. His work is outstanding.

I would like the Woodstock Vt option. I hate to ship guns or gun barrels. Easy drive to Woodstock.

Ditto on Dan. He did a set of 16 Grant barrels for me, rust blue, very well done. This is not to disparage others cited. Dan is closer, easier one day shipping for me.

I used Briley. Other than taking a long time the work was good.

Breck did a few sets of bbls for me. Beautiful work. If the VT shop is close to you, then I'd use them. Saves on shipping and worrying if they are delivered undamaged and on time.
