Denver?

I know about CT Brian and Stan Chen, whose work I think is awsome, but do any of you know of a gunsmith in the Denver/metro area that you'd trust? I'm intrested in fairly minor work, not a full house gun, if that makes a difference.

Denver smiths

I've used TJ's Firing Line gunsmith for a SW 617 trigger job and for radiusing and polishing the trigger for double action shooting. He did a fine job, and had a 2 week turn around.

I have a Winchester Model 12 at Gunsmoke that is due back in a week or so. They have a longer backlog there, but I've seen their 1911's. They seem to be very good as well. I'll let you know how the re-blue and polish job goes.

Thank you. I know where the Firing line is, but where is Gunsmoke?

Gunsmoke is in Wheatridge, off 38th Ave and Wadsworth Blvd.

There was a young smith there by the name of Dave. He did an action job on my Kimber Pro Carry that came out great. No creep whatsoever and broke crisply at exactly 4 lbs, like I asked. Also had him put a SA beavertail on my Colt XS Commandar, which came out pretty good. This was over a year ago, however. Not even sure if he is still there.

Re: Denver?

Long dead thread I know. When speaking of "Firing Line" there are two in the area with similar names. "The Firing Line" is on Potomac, it is an actual gunshop with high prices, and RUDE as HELL, I'll never step in there again.

Then there is the above mentioned "TJ's Firing Line Gunsmith" on Airport (Buckley) just south of 6th. This is not a store, they are strictly a smithy shop. Tim will order guns for you if you ask, but don't expect any spectacular pricing. He also does easy transfers though. Tim is the owner and a graduate of The School Of Trades gun smithing school, and sits on the board there as well. The steady smith he has working with him is Fritz, also a graduate of The School of Trades. He also brings in extra help from time to time to help with the back log, and they are all grads of the same school.

I have had Tim and Fritz do alot of work of all sorts on any number of guns, from the mundane to the exotic request. Seems there is no task they cannot handle. The only thing they don't do is much finish work. They do do Duracoat, and hot bluing, but the meat and spuds of that place is top notch smithing work to include machining anything short of a fresh barrel from a blank.

I would recommend them for just about anything. Both Tim and Fritz can/will build the 1911 of your dreams from scratch, or begin with your pistol as a base gun as. If I had more than 2 thumbs I would put them all up for these guys.
