Have you checked with any local gunsmiths in your town/area ?
They may be able to do the job for you.
Or you might contact Pac-nor or Doug Turnbull.

Greg Tannel is one of the best, but be prepared to wait for it.

If Evilio MacDonald in Houston, TX is still working, he has done a bunch of them. I have my own reamer and did the last two myself with barrel in place using a T-handle wrench from PT&G. It isn't a particularly difficult job, just have to pay attention to the basics and don't get too aggressive.
There was another guy from the midwest who used to post on this site a good bit; went into gunsmithing/rifle building several years ago but can't remember his name. Maybe someone else can shed some light on this?

May be thinking of member ab bentley from Dresden Ohio. Adam's company was Dresden Gun Co. Ltd.

Did I not read somewhere, that he was retiring and even had his business for sale ? Was going to still do a few things. Or was that another gunsmith ?

Check with Dennis Olson in Plains Montana.
Havenít used him recently but at the time his prices were reasonable and turn around very good.
