We have a Winchester 73 that has minimum collector value. We would like to get it re-barreled. Any suggestions on a good gunsmith to do it.

If the barrel is original, you might want to consider getting it relined to have both a new bore and the old finish and markings. Have not done it but our museum has a '73 that is in fair condition outside, bore is poor, but mechanically excellent. I occasionally think we should do it so I could do range demonstrations... cost may be a bit lower as well...
