Default S&W Gun Smith Needed

Are there anymore good revolver smiths left in the DFW area?

I called Gene Williams and he is no longer working on revolvers. If anyone knows a good one please let me know. Thanks

Ten-Ring in San Antonio? Or try Pinnacle High Performance - Custom Revolvers, Revolver Gunsmith if you don't mind shipping your gun.

I always like to browse the American Pistolsmith's Guild website to see what's new.

Hope this helps.

I don't know if he works on revolvers , but BMCM (Bill) is a master gunsmith . He's worked wonders on my S&W's that he's worked on . You can contact him here on the Forum , he's a member .

Contact Mike@ " Mikes Gun Room " in Richardson Tx . He has an old school gunsmith name " Mark " that works through his shop . He is the best I have ever used and I've used him several times . In fact he just finished a job for me on my 19 snubbie . I couldn't be happier .
BTW: Mike , a former Marine Major , has been in business for over 25 yrs . 2 days ago ( the 10th) 3 BM's came in , put guns to his head and robbed him . Be aware of someone trying to sell a bunch of hand guns in the DFW area , or further , they could be stolen . Regards, Paul

Thatís a good idea, Iíll drop in. By the way, I read Mike shot one of the bad guys in the robbery. Didnít know they got away with any guns.

As a follow up, thanks for recommending Mike's to me. I left my 340PD with him to give to Mark, and it took a while to repair because Mark had to order a part, but when I got it back it worked perfectly. This was my first experience dealing with a broken part on a S&W. I was a bit skeptical leaving my gun with a guy I never met, but all seems to have turned out well. Thanks again for turning my on to Mike's. Not much of a store, but a good gun smith contact. By the way, did you ever get Mark's phone number? I talked to him on the phone, but I never got his number. Thanks

shooter 1911 , No , I have never talked to Mark so I don't have his phone number . I just leave my item with Mike , telling him what I am needing . Mike had a much bigger / better inventory before the robbery .
I'm glad all worked out well for you . Mark is the best I have ever used .
Regards, Paul
