    Default Barel mechanic in Austin, TX?

    Could anyone recommend a skilled Mauser barrel mechanic, in or very near, Austin, TX?

    I am a hobbyist that very much enjoys doing what work I can do myself, but I need someone that can finish-ream / headspace and install a short-chambered cheapo Brownell's barrel on a field-grade 98, without mussin it up too bad.

    I would call this a working-man's deer hunting rifle but would still like the work done right.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you can't get a hold of Bambam, let me know, I have his contact information here somewhere. I've been in his shop and will say, he has a very nice operation. Ken

    HUH? What do you mean by that statement?

    Have nothing for the OP. Butch probably knows what he is saying, but I have no idea what he means.
