Can anybody recommend a gunsmith that specializes in Enfields?

I have a 1909 BSA with a rotten barrel, and by rotten, I mean on the outside... big time. The gun looked really nice on the outside when I bought it, but a couple months later when I tore it down, I was horrified to see serious rot under the woodline. I think the reciever is still safe, but the barrel is not, it probably would have been except somebody tried to smooth the pits with a grinder... while they were drunk.

Anyway, I managed to score a clean 1920 BSA barrel to replace the other. I just need somebody to put it on.

PS, my 1909 still has the mag cutoff and volley sites, which is why I'm goin to all this trouble.

Big Jim of Black River Gunsmithing, also a sponsor here, can do it. He put a barrel on a spare Enfield receiver I had. EDINOH.

Hello Youngsurplusnut,
Give Scott a ring if you choose to use him. He is backed up on the more detailed work but he may be able to squeese in a straight forward barrel change.... Now, If you ask him to change out the barrel and bed it to the stock and tweak this and that... you may scare him off :)

That's exactly what I asked him (plain jane barrel removal) when he told me it'd be at least a year. Can't hurt to ask, well other than distracting him from other stuff of course. ;)

You can try Arnold at A&J Gunsmithing in Raytown MO. He is a master gunsmith. I've seen a restored Enfield he has done, it is emaculate. He is probably 1-2 months out. 816-358-5225 tell him Alan told you to give him a call.
