Verifying lens calibration

I’d like to verify AF calibration of my lenses with my primary camera body? What’s the nearest place to Nashville where I could get that done? I tried doing it myself but the results were inconclusive.

Updated Mosin

K31-style loop safety, Archangel stock, Micor flash hider. K31 safety is fairly awkward, but it’s a huge improvement on the original Mosin design. Turned-down bolt handle permits a low scope mount.
