threading a remington 700 barrel

I'm looking at getting a remington 700 and then getting the barrel threaded for either a muzzle break or at some point a suppressor. This would be my first experiance with a gunsmith. Are there any questions i should ask or anything to be on the lookout for? Lastly is there anyone in the Brentwood/Franklin area that you would reccomend? thanks

Rocky at Franklin Gun Shop would be my first choice.

great choice in getting a 700. They are the "ford mustang" of the precision world. The questions you should be asking yourself (Your gunsmith should be able to help you think about this too)

1. Would it be a better idea to just go ahead and get it rebarreled with a $355 Lilja 3-button 1-10 barrel and get that threaded and fluted? $355 parts and $240+ gunsmith fee?

OR 2. Should you get it cut down and threaded? $175 gunsmith fee?

For my custom 308 being built I am deciding between a 20" or 24" 1-10... decisions!

After that, get a Jewell trigger ($225) and you should be set besides deciding if you are going with an AAC 90T Muzzle Brake (still hasn't been released yet but its for attaching the new 90T AAC Suppressor) or a Surefire Muzzle Brake (for attaching a Surefire suppressor).

ALSO, if you haven't bought the 700 yet, why not spend a ridiculous amount of money and get a custom one built? My new one will cost around 3K without optics...
