    Anyone know of a gun smith that is taking on work right now? Seems like every web site I check out says no new work til further notice. Be real nice if I could find one within driving distance, western PA., eastern Ohio..

    Try Jeremy Reid. I know his latest production will bring folks running to him but maybe you can get in soon enough. I believe he said he is taking orders.

    Chuck Rogers (rogers precision) is recommending two smiths that do great work and have shorter wait times, they are Dwayne Greufe http://www.doubledcustom.com/Double_D_Custom/Custom_1911_Pistolsmithing.html And also Jeremy Reid he can be contacted by emailing [email protected]. Chuck says they do great work. He also recommends Joe Chambers http://www.chamberscustom.com/, and Louhttp://www.businessendcustoms.com/. I am unaware of these wait times as these smiths are a little better known. He has given all of these smiths great compliments. I hope that helps.
