Default Gunsmith near Vista?

Moved to Vista after I got out of the military, not really familiar with the area and looking for a place to pin and weld a muzzle device to a 14.5 barrel.

Any recommendations?

Don Gussler is a San Diego County icon. Works from home and you have to make sure your schedule and his coincide. I've done business with Mr. Gussler and have absolutely no complaints.

A little closer to home is Duncans Gunworks.

Call ahead and make sure your needs can be met before burning liquid gold.
The fabulous statistics continued to pour out of the telescreen. As compared with last year there was more food, more clothes, more houses, more furniture, more cooking-pots, more fuel, more ships, more helicopters, more books, more babies -- more of everything except disease, crime, and insanity. Year by year and minute by minute, everybody and everything was whizzing rapidly upwards.

Duncan’s did a good job for me but they hire an outside welder. Just takes a couple extra days depending on the contractor.

Call Hugo. He’s a good guy and honest. He can let you know what they can do and when.

Duncan's seems like a go, only about 10 min from me.

I saw a pla e called Gunther's Guns. Any opinions on that place?

Gunther's have great people, I just recently used them for transfer.

For gunsmith works, I highly recommend Randall, he is held in high regard not just here but other guns forum as well.

I haven't had to chance, but I planned on making a visit to Randall soon.

I had a p/w at a highly recommended shop as well, and the result "shocked" me.

You know what they said about "buy once cry once" ?

I would rather "drive 2 hours to LA once & p/w once"

I'd use UPS before I drove to LA. Why waste $100 gas for $20 shipping?

Plus you get to avoid LA.
