    Any Benchrest Gunsmiths in Eastern NC?

    Looking for leads or recommendations on an experienced gunsmith to build a 6br or 30br. I'm on the coast of NC and have had no luck in finding anyone that is qualified.

    Don't know about centerfire but I just had a RF bench gun built by John Langley in Ohio. Shouldn't be too far from you.

    Thanks penn63, it's a little over 8 hours from my place, hopefully I can find someone closer.

    Guys, Dave Tooley is in Oriental, NC. I somewhat believe that is on the eastern coast.

    Googled him a few minutes ago and it is showing his shop in Oriental. If this is correct he is less than 10 miles from my home!
