Default So Calif Gunsmith.

This has probably been beaten half to death here but...
Besides March Grade Gunsmith in La Habra, which is still a bit of a drive from me, do you guys have a competent smithy any closer to the south bay (Lawndale/Torrance) area..?
Just need a local guy for the stuff that pops up for all of us.
Right now I need to speak to one about some cylinder reaming for my .357. Fired way too many .38 in it.

I have a 357 mag cylinder reamer.
I can de-lead your cylinder for you.
I am in Van Nuys which is probably closer than La Habra.

+1 for Randall.

I also recommend Alan Tanaka, he works on a lot of wheel guns. Alan is in Gardena. I don't have his contact info but you can find it on Calguns.

I was thinking of having a new Ruger 357 GP100 smoothed out and lighter Wolf Springs put in. Located in Valley close to you. Something up your alley?

Wrap some bronze wool on a used bore brush and work the cylinder holes, the crap will come out with a little elbow grease. Use it dry, no solvent.
