Default Looking for a SF Bay Area gunsmith to cut back a barrel

Like the title says; seems as though Bay Area gunsmithing is a dying art, so I'm hoping y'all can point me in the right direction.

I need a Mini 14 barrel cut back to 16.5" and threaded for a brake.

Anyone local doing this sort of work? I'm willing to drive for a while for the work.

EDIT: I'm trying to re-create this:

Give Nathan at bayareagunsmithing a call, I know he has a lathe and welder (if you need it pinned) so he might be able to do it. He's in north bay in Novato.

Check out this thread for possible other leads: http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=765471
Although many of them might only do smaller work on pistols and not have a lathe.

I do these quite often.
Here's one I did a while back for a customer.
Licensed and insured, so you can ship it if you like.
