Another option is to consider Dan Killough, Killough Shooting Sports. He can provide a turn key solution getting all the components, over seeing the testing and tuning and providing ammo that's been matched to the rifle. Richard Gorham who's already been mentioned does his metal work.
Dan did a rifle for me and it's good.

Another Smith one needs to mention is Mark Penrod over in Indiana. He's a perfectionist and turns out some very nice rifles. He did the rifle for the ARA Nationals this year that they give away and it was a real nice.

Another recommendation for (surprise) Gordon Eck. He loves building great rifles for new shooters and watching them grow.

I'll add another recommendation for Richard Gorham. He's in Claremore, OK. Send me a PM if you want his contact info.

Never figured out why somebody wants a smith close, unless he wants to peer over his shoulder. Post office is cheap. Ship it to the best person.

Butch - you obviously have better luck shipping than I do.

Well,
I have shipped many receivers, barrels, and custom rifles. The post office has not failed me yet.

I really didn't know that. Never have been to his house but thought he was from the Ks side of the river.
