Default Looking for recommendations for a revolver smith..

Howdy,

Does anyone know if Ron Power(Grandmaster) is still taking in work? Anybody know if cylinder and Slide is a good bet?

I have a 686-4+ mag comp. With an ever so slightly canted barrel... I have had 1 smith tell me nothing can be done its to tight, I have had another say the barrel can be taken back of and put back on the proper way...

Suggestions on a premium gun smith (revolver smith) would be much appreciated.

I refuse to send it back to Smith & Wesson.


Thanks Erik

Try Gus-G&D Firearms & Repair, Brooksville, Fl. 352-584-7789. He is an AGI gunsmith graduate and is recommended for all types of firearms.

Don't have any personal experience with his work, but Karl Sokol at Chestnut Mountain Sports is always highly recommended.

Cylinder & Slide can handle about anything and do it well.
