Gunsmith to shorten and thread a barrel

Recommended Posts

I am contemplating building a Trapper in 30-30 if I can pick up a “needs a lot of work” Marlin I am following on an auction. Anyone know of a good gunsmith in the Nashville area who can cut the barrel down to 16.5” and thread it for a suppressor?  I will also need a dovetail cut into the top for a front sight blade and the bottom for the mag tube holder

Check with the guy in Chapel Hill at Echo 3 Armory.  Not sure of his prices, but threading shouldn't be any issue.   I thread my own barrels but have a lathe and tooling.  It really isn't rocket science to be honest.  You will want a mill to do the dovetails.
