I decided last year Oct to to a caliber swop from my 308 to 6mmRemAI.
Gunsmith tells me about 8-10 days, no problem. I go for it.
Nov...nothing happens. He has no barrel steel (he cuts his own barrels)
Dec...nothing happens other then he now has the steel, but his lathe is not working.
But.. he aint going on Dec holidays and will have it done by Jan 3rd.
Jan 4th I phone...he is in Mocambique on 2 weeks holiday!!!
Mid Jan...he has now cut the chamber..has to profile and bed.
End Jan...no change.
Come Feb I tell him I have to compete at end of month...
2 days later he has profiled barrel and only has to bed.
I also need a proofing cert which he promised he would have this past Tuesday7Feb.
He lets me know last night (7Feb) he has the proofing cert!!
You see, miracles still happen!
 
What is it about gunsmiths.....this is now my third similiar experience with 3 different guys, all highly recommended????

8-10 days vs. 4 months... close but no cigar. I hope his work is what you desired. Personally, that kind of stuff really ticks me off. If it's going to take 4 months, fine. Say so up front. In other words, say what you mean and mean what you say. Good luck.

I hope I never get a rep like that. I do what I have to do to stand by what I tell someone what i'm going to do. I'm glad it is working out for you now after a painful wait for way to long.

The proof is always in the pudding. Hope to shoot on Sat.
This guy comes highly recommended and his barrels are all cut barrels. I have seen some amazing 300yds grouping from his barrels.
