Can anyone recommend a reputable gunsmith in the Valley/Anchorage area? I have an old Savage 99 takedown in .250-3000 that needs to be tightened up. The takedown capability has become ever so slightly loose which is making it impossible for me to maintain a zero. I think I have narrowed the problem down to a small tang that interlocks the barrel and action with the forestock. I think all it needs is to be welded up and re-milled to fit tight. I am needing this rifle for my rapidly growing hunting partner (my 10yo daughter) who has decided she wants to take a caribou. I killed my first caribou with this gun when I was 13 and it seems only fitting that she do the same .
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
