Default Gunsmith Who Will Work on Drill Rifles?

Hi all,
Just wondering if anyone knows a gunsmith who will work on 1903 and 1903a3 drill rifles.

I have a few barrels I would like installed. If they are willing to clean up the cutoff weld area then even better. My local smith here says no... I understand his leeriness but personally I have no structural integrity concerns. These are to be mostly wall hangers anyway.

Thanks!
Andy

You mean working on them to make them operable, right?
The exposure to liability will never go away until they're demiled again if a round can be chambered, so assume the worst first.

Thanks. Just looking for a gunsmith at the current time who will work on them. I know many will based on other posts I have read and the fact that reputable companies are selling reactivated drill rifles.

This Gunsmith re-barreled a M1903A3 drill rifle that I re-activated.
I have shot Bronze and Silver with this rifle in CMP Games matches.
