Gunsmith near Kent?

Hi Gang!
I need a gunsmith fluent in AR-15's.

Champion Arms lost their gunsmith (last time I checked), and Federal Way Discount Gun's guy is backlogged months. I need a good "shade-tree mechanic" or independant gunsmith to fix my Bushmaster!

Any leads??!

Thanks,
Bill

Dave Nielsen, Southridge Arms, in Orting. What's wrong with your AR?

I got a live round jammed between the bolt and the top of the receiver!
I mean JAMMED! Can't move anything forward, backward, can't pivot the round out sideways, geeze....
I even tried pushing the disassembly pin out and pivoting the upper from the lower receiver. Nada...
:-(

Hawker, Sir, you are a scholar and a gentleman!
Good call, that's what it took.
It only bought me 1/4 inch of bolt travel, but that was THE most beautiful quarter inch I've ever seen.
Managed to get the jammed round into the chamber, THEN she disassembled just as designed.
Again, thanks for saving me at least two trips to the gunsmith!
