Note: There are very few gunsmiths that specialize in making these revolvers fast and reliable.  Mike Brackett is probably the best of them.  The work done to each of these costs $165 each not including shipping back and forth. It includes:


1. Correct the arbor length and bed the arbor - This allows the revolver to work as a solid unit instead of two assemblies held together.
2. Set the barrel/ cylinder gap to .002-.0025 - This eliminates the debris, which causes the cylinder to bind. The smaller the gap, the longer you can shoot without binding.
3. Sculpt the bolt head - This allows for earlier entry into the locking notch and will protect the notch from damage. Sculpting also reduces weight and increases efficiency.
4. Installation of a bolt block - Creates a solid lock up and helps to prevent throw-by.
5. Installation of an action stop - This feature prevents over-travel of the hammer and keeps the hand from being forced against the ratchet after lock up.
6.  Installation of a cap post - This keeps spent caps and/ or fragments out of the action. It also restricts any blowback past the post, which allows for a much lighter "cartridge" type action (Colt and Colt type safety pins are not affected).
7.  Harden and fire blue the screws and screw pins - Not only will they look better, but also action parts will have less friction due to the heat-treating.
8.  Individually tune springs - It is important for springs to work efficiently. Most springs are over stressed.
9.  Set to perfect timing
