Recommendation for barrel replacement

Anybody have a recommendation, in NOVA, for a gunsmith/shop to do a barrel replacement? Preference centered around the Warrenton, Gainesville, Haymarket area. Willing to go a bit farther afield if needed. Not looking for world-record setting work; just solid workmanship.

Oh yeah. Remington bolt.

Re: Schrodinger's gun

Cognitive dissonance- simultaneously believing you can't take down the U.S. government without nukes and F-15's; and that it was almost done with bare hands and a viking hat.

Re: left handed shooter

Right-handed bolt actions are possible, but slow. Handguns with safeties... really need a lefty safety. On handguns, right-handed magazine releases and slide releases are usually easy to use left handed. On rifles, right-handed magazine releases and slide releases are often (but not always) clumsy t...

Today in history - Tiananmen square

Hard to believe it has been 31 years since Tiananmen Square, today.

And my memory had totally forgot that it was the same year as the Berlin Wall coming down. Time seems to have separated them mentally.

FWIW. During the recent flurry of activity, I ended up on the email list of the Virginia Constitutional Conservatives. I don't know much about them, except that they came down on the right side in the gun ban. From their emails, they are offering some classes in political activism. In Winchester: ht...
