Hey folks,

I'm located in the Huntsville area, and I have a Saiga AK-47 that I want to chop the barrel, replace the gas block, and pin/weld a flash device on, as well as weld up the old holes from its conversion. Would anyone happen to know of any gunsmiths in the area that could do this work? I know Hiram Holt used to be the regular name, however, it doesn't look like he's in the game anymore. I know American Pride Firearms in Harvest is pretty highly spoken of, but I'm cautious. Does anyone have any experience with them, or any other gunsmith in Northern Alabama (southern TN, too) that does excellent work on AKs? I'd prefer not to mail my rifle anywhere, considering how many folks are having guns disappear in the mail between FFLs.
