Default Win 94 Barrel shorten. N. Co SD / Newport Beach?

Hi all, looking for a gunsmith to cut down a barrel on a beater Winchester 94, bought especially for this. I need the barrel / Mag tube shortened then the barrel band moved, and a new dovetail cut for front sight. I'm in North Co San Diego, but work in Newport Beach so anywhere around in / around SD/ OC or inland Empire will work, I just want a decent guy doing it. I've tried a local place but just talking to the gunsmith he said a few things that didn't sound right. This was my "Go-to" place and I'm pretty disappointed the guy tried to BS/over charge me (the price suddenly dropped $150 just after one comment, but was still expensive). I've heard, over the years, of a guy in Fallbrook who's a lever gun expert but I can't find any contact for him. I'm sure it's not that hard a job but I don't have tools or one time skills to do it.

Any help appreciated, old school machinist guy would be perfect..
