I had Larry work on two of my pistols and he did a fine job.

Tried to call his number and got a disconnected message.

Anyone know if he changed his phone number or has "retired?"

I've got a Swedish Lahti that needs some help and I'd like to give him a crack at it.

thanks in advance.

I'd like in on the information if it pertains to Larry. I also tried to contact him and found the number disconnected.

I had Larry thread a couple 10/22 barrels for me earlier this month. The number I contact him on is 360-668-9409. He is a bit tricky to find on google but does come up if you search for Classic Precision Gunsmithing.

Why all the secrecy? I'd like to find someone to do a little work on my new to me Ruger SP 101, and it's like pulling teeth to get a good recommendation for someone local. Is Larry still working?

I talked to him the other day, had no problem getting a hold of him. Prices for AR upper assembly seem kind of steep though. Definitely would go to him based on different reviews I've heard on sites. But for 120+ for Upper assembly, I can get a nice hard case for my rifle and use it to mail to ADCO.

Larry Conley rebarrel my Mark V Weatherby to 358 Norma Magnum. He is a competent gunsmith however he forgot t o resurface the bolt face before he rebarreled the action. I had them cerakote the barreled action but forgot to do the swivel studs. I gave him a stock that had been glass bedded with JB compound. He said the stock wouldn't work he dulled two chisels and a circular routing tool and could not get the compound out. I simply took Jerry Fisher scrapers and scraped it right out. These can be purchased from Midway USA Brownells and others If someone knows about them. He also did not stamp the caliber on the barrel. I also wanted him to throat the 310 gr Woodley round nose bullet to see flush with the neck shoulder of the case. He misjudged and I had to go to the 300 Win Mag case with the longer neck in order to seat the bullet to the lands of the barrel. Better luck next time.

I’d totally forgot about that guy. I had Larry do some 1911 reliability work in the early 2000’s. Did great work for a reasonable price, and fast turn around (because it was my carry gun at the time). Ended up doing some extra work at no charge in fact. He lived about 10 minutes from my folks place. Nice guy.
