Default Custom Revolver Maker: Anyone who specializes?

Okay, I am not talking about a gunshop that does 60% of their business in rifles, 20% in AR's and the other 20% is whatever walks in the door.

I am talking a place that takes revolvers seriously and will turn out a quality model that isn't the S&W Performance Center and isn't a place like D&L Sports that charges 10 times the price for the same gun because it has been blessed.

I am thinking I have the need for a .44 mag revolver that is a shorter barrel for carry, but still accurate and fine tuned for easy shooting without needing wrist surgery.

Anyone know a guy?

Dude, you expect to run into some angry bears? A small .44 Mag isn't real pleasant to shoot by any stretch of the imagination. On the serious side, S&W revolvers are quite easy to work on and smooth out yourself. I did the trigger work on my 686 and it is very smooth and sprung just right...

The .44 has always had a special place for me. My old man had one and my grandfather owned one. I figure now that I am "old" I need at least one .44 in the arsenal.

I have shot a couple of smaller barrel .44's that were quite tame if prepped & weighted correctly.

I love the look of this piece, but definitely not in that caliber and definitely NOT for the pricetag on it.

You need to wrap your fingers around a 329PD that has a .500 A&W grip on it. It'll give you a woody...

Funny you should bring this up, JD. I just returned from shooting all my magnum handguns and let me just say, a good pair of shooting gloves can do a lot for a day magnum shooting. Tamed my 44 right down.
