Smiths in NY / northern Pa?

My first build and I'd prefer a smith in my general area for no particular reason.
Can you folks recommend some options? I would guess that most are familiar with military and commercial Mausers but ill mention the platform I'm using anyway.
I have occasionally used local smiths for smaller jobs on shotguns, revolvers and 1911's and if your guys is experienced here also, it is worth considering that I could consolidate all of my work and establish a long term (beyond just this rifle project) relationship.

Thanks guys,
Ed

I know the site triggerman.
It does not provide what I am hoping to get from this site; personal recommendations. The "leave feedback" feature of that site would be great but very few smiths have feedback on them.
