    Good places to send kits to get built?

    Hi akforum, new post here. I have a couple kits I want to have made and I've seen lee armory. They seem to do pretty good work but before choosing who I want to build my parts kits I'd like to know all my options.

    Anyone have experience with them or anyone else? Any recommendations?

    Depends on what you want to achieve. Historically correct collectible shooter or a modern up to date blaster.

    Hint, you want several of both.

    Two River Arms

    They have good communication, good turn around time, and ask for payment after the job.

    You need to find a local hobby builder, give him chocolates and beer, sweet talk him... Give him shit, then they will build your kit. I courted a handful of men in the Dallas/Ft.Worth area early on. They eventually left me and moved on but it was sweet while it lasted. I learned alot lol.

    BR 7.62. But it seems he's never accepting new work.

    My vote is TRA or BR7.62. POHF also does good work but not sure if he is still building.

    Hopefully Brendyn will be doing builds at some point in the future.

    I have my fingers crossed and several kits ready in case.

    No one has mentioned Corey at Northwest Gun Supply, in Nampa ID. I now have 9 builds with him (and two in the planing phase), including a 69 Tula, and 88 Izzy. Communication, turn around time, and build quality are top notch. Also, his pricing isn't trough the roof. As shooters they are also great guns. He pays great attention to historical accuracy, but can also build you a blaster.
