Default Gunsmith(s) in Reno for M1 Garand and AR platform?

I've searched a few times here, haven't found any threads that have information on gunsmiths in Reno. Found one about a smith in gardnerville, but I don't want to go out that way. Here's what I need done:

I have a M1 Garand that I want restored/refinished (new barrel and furniture) and I would like it inspected by a certified gunsmith because the clips sometimes get stuck in the magazine well.

In addition, I have an AR that I built and I need my free float guard installed - all of my tools are still in storage and I'm itching to get this thing on there.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Is the guy out in Gardnerville really the only smith in the area?

Had almost the same problem, the ones I was finding specialized (mostly 1911 or long range bolts) and wouldn't touch my Garand.

There is a guy in, I think, Susanville that can do the M1, the smith at Alkali International here in Winnemucca pointed me to him once but I lost the contact info since then. Call 775 625 2413 and get a name and number.

Otherwise you have Dean's Guns, James River, or Shuff's Parkerizing to go to but those are a ways out, need to ship. Google for their web pages and do not look at Shuff's Mini-G's, nothing interesting there.

Thanks for the info. I reached out to DGR, and they are about 14 weeks out. I'll probably end up going with them because they have pretty fair pricing and 14 weeks puts the garand back in my hands right around xmas time

Mark Fore and Strike also claim to have a gunsmith available but I have no experience with them.
