Default Model 986 Help

I just purchased a Model 986 and put JD's lock delete and Wilson Combat spring kit in it. Then put a D&L rear sight and VZ checkered Predator grips on it. The action though hangs up on occasion in double action and a couple times in single action. Can someone point me to a good revolver Smith that can fine tune this action and make it slicker than it currently is? Dave O'Meara

You're right Dan I didn't even think about Nelson. He's right down the street from me and I've never had the opportunity to get something done by him. I'll call him this morning. Thank you.

The snub looks good and JD's plug seems to fill the hole real nice!
