Oscar Kobb in New Brunswick does very nice work, and is very well respected in this field.
I have talked to him at length, and he explained just how long he soaks the parts in the kiln for , and what his results yeild.
I have also seen some of his work.
My Ruger stalking rifle is going down to him as well as my Lafeachaux 16 gauge under lever, which is a family heirloom.
Of course my vintage guns get shot - Why the heck do you think they call them SHOT guns for?!
