Gene Williams in Princeton TX is one of the best gunsmiths there is period, nationally or locally. If you're interested in his number send me a PM and I'll give you his number.

Also, welcome to Dallas

Re: Dallas area gunsmith to true Rem 700 receiver.

Your top smith's in the area will be Steve Lamphear in Princeton, Mike Lau with Texas Brigade Armory in Mingus, TX and S&S precision. I have heard Gene Williams is good, but dang is he opinionated!

That's part of the fun of hanging out with Gene. Yes, he can be opinionated at times but he's one of the finest gunsmiths I've ever had work on my rifles. I’ve used Steve Lamphear also he’s also a darn good gunsmith also.

Richard King does good work. He does a lot of work for the guys I shoot with. He will not have a long wait time.

Mike Lau is going to have a long wait time.

Let me add another good word for Gene Williams. I'm taking a rifle to him tomorrow for repair.

Re: Dallas area gunsmith to true Rem 700 receiver.

+100 on Gene Williams. He can talk and you cant get away..and he is opinionated. On the other side. He is very nice and does good work. Price was reasonable and done in 2 days. I have since been back and had other stuff done. If you have time to socialize, go with Gene.

    Gene Williams or Garland over at Triple G gunsmithing in Stephenville. TBA has had some issues it would seem lately and add the time its going to take to get it done into the equation. Garland can get you turned around in 2 weeks. I am not sure what Gene is sitting on right now. Have had the pleasure of owning a rifle from S&S and will cross Stick and Sims off the list of smith's I use that are local.

    Give bolt a call he can maybe point you in an even better direction.

    Another shout for Gene. He has built multiple rifles for me and the have always been great. I picked up my 6XC a couple of weeks ago and he said he was going to stop taking work for a little bit to get caught up but you never know with Gene. Just give him a call and he will tell you if he cant get it done in the time you need it.

    I agree with the posts on Gene Williams in Princeton. He's done three rifles for me and the quality has been great. In fact he has one of mine right now.

    I have used Gene Williams and S&S. Both are great, but my vote goes to Gene Williams in Princeton (by a small margin). He built my 257 Wby and it is a lazer

    Stic built my 280 AI and it is a shooter too.
