You could ship to them, but it's probably more helpful if you live in sw PA.

They do NFA/Class III work, cerakoting, and typical gunsmithing, and at very reasonable prices (especially around here!).
They cerakoted my old Star Firestar M45



And last week, I had them remove and replace my old quad rails, because the Phantom comp was pinned/welded, and I couldn't remove that myself.  Not ONLY did they replace them, they SAVED the Phantom comp, which saved me dozens of more bucks on a NEW comp!

I’ve had great success with CGW for CZs and will be sending another CZ to them soon.

For S&W, I’ve had great success with Pinnacle High Performance http://pinnaclehighperformance.com/
Mark Hartshorne did a superb job acquiring, machining  and fitting an add’l cylinder in 9mm for my 627.

I echo the previous post advocating the SIG Armorer- top notch

ADCO is the #1 shop in the USA for pretty much anything black rifle related. Pinning, recontouring, threading, fluting, etc. www.adcofirearms.com/


M60 Joe is also the #1 shop in the USA for almost everything Title II related. Blow up your $20,000 receiver? He can fix it. Break your $10,000 Lightening Link, and he's the man. Baffle strikes? He'll fix that too. www.m60joe.com

Marvin Pitts of Nefarious Arms formerly worked for Knights Armament Corp (KAC) and does barrel work including the infamous KAC PDW barrel dimpling. He dimples the barrels in the exact pattern that KAC does.
His contact info is: nefariousarms@live.com

Examples of Marvin's barrel work:




I'll second Marvin Pitts and NefariousArms. Marvin is scary meticulous, a craftsman of the highest order.

Agree.  CGW has great customer service and most their products are drop-in install that can be easily performed by owners

+1 on CGW and CJ Maven for gunsmithing. They have both worked on some of my CZ's and their skills and customer service are outstanding. Nice, knowledgeable guys who care about their customer service and stand behind their products.

I will add that the few times I have called CZ USA with questions about parts, I have also had great experiences.

I have used CZC Cajun and CJ Maven on some of my CZ's and clones
All 3 do excellent work.

CZC does great work, gun runs great the  cost a bunch but are worth it , long wait
Cajun does great work has good Customer service once you make to the top of their list and buddy does your gun shoot nice when you get it back. As a bonus you get to say you are in the  Cajunized gun club
CJ Mavens has the best lead time, has superb customer service and can make a good gun great for a real fair price. He is a nice guy. you will be happy and you will be shooting your gun about 2 months sooner then with the other 2 guys. I suggest giving CJ a try. CJ Mavens does great work and you probably get your gun back in 10 days.
you will love your trigger when he sends it back

Robert, Just dropped off PCR to CJ Maven. 2 WK TA time, He took the time to explain the best options for what I was wanting. Very nice & informative and as recoilguy stated very reasonable on prices. He has been working on CZ's for quite a number of years.
