    Default 1911 Smiths in Reading/Berks?

    Hello all, first post here. I did a cursory search, but couldn't find anything, so please let me know if this has already been covered.

    I'm looking for a decent gunsmith in Reading or Berks County to handle some standard work (throat/extractor, trigger job, recrown, etc) on my Colt Commander. Nothing fancy, she's my everyday CCW.

    Thanks, guys.
