Hi,

I repair all types of guns, semi-auto, revolvers, rifles and shotguns. All but the lock-up sound like a thorough cleaning is needed. By thorough I mean complete disassembly, clean, lubricate and re-assemble. The lock-up could be a worn cylinder stop, weak spring or dirt and grease. Front to rear play of the cylinder can also be repaired by inserting "end shake bearings"

I would be happy to take care of it for you. It can be shipped to me or if you are close by, dropped off at my shop

Hi,

Are you interested in having the work done on your revolver? My turn around time is 7 - 10 days, with shipping it would be 14 days at the most. Cost would be approximately $75.

References are available if you want to check my work
