    Hi, I need a smith to install a williams fp 94/36 peep sight on a lever action for me. It just needs two holes drilled and tapped. I normally try everything on my own but I would like this to be precisely done and I have no drill press or anything like that.

    I'm in Gainesville but anywhere close would be fine. Any recommendations?

    Thanks man, they are kinda far. If I happen to find my way down to Tampa in the next few weeks I may give them a call. I'll keep looking, I don't really care for the smith I have dealt with in Gville.

    My dad lives in Ocala and has been driving to Tampa a few times a week for work. I may have to see if he could drop it off there for me.

    If you find someone with recommendations, Id use him.

    I would always check out thoroughly anyone you use, as their are a lot of gunquacks out there. Hate to have some masterpiece ruined.

    Yeah, thats what I've come to realize. Luckily nothing of mine has been messed up but just listening to some of these guys makes me laugh. I may just take a day trip down there one day.
