Default Model 60 Hammer Bob

I have a S&W model 60 and I would like to have the hammer bobbed. I'm assuming this is a total hammer replacement. My question is what should I expect to pay for having the work done? Also any suggestions on other mods I could have done while it becomes a bob? Thanks!

Not a hammer replacement.
You definitely want to be sure you want the modification especially if you're going to pay someone.

I would likely charge $50. I assume most places are in the $75-$150 range.
Just an added note. If you attempt this you do so at your own risk and make sure you don't heat the part up in the process.

Other mods you could have done is maybe polishing the sear, or some other trigger work. My model 60 doesn't need it, but I guess it would make it a much sweeter shooter. Although if you're going to be CCing this wheel gun you prolly don't want too short of a trigger pull.

Pictures!

Not knowing how old and used your mdl 60 is, I would suggest the following.

1. Get another hammer to practice on. They are not going to cost that much, and if you like the result, you can replace the original hammer and store it for later.

2. Get a new spring kit. Don't try to adjust the tension of the hammer spring, you'll only end up with light hits on the primer.

back about 1980,I came into possession of a Model 19 2inch for a song. The previous owner had dropped it and the thumbing spur had broken away leaving a jagged hump behind.. So I decided to clean it up and make a set of Iron wood grips for it. Figured I couldn't screw it up and I could always R&R the part later.

It was easy as pie. I used my moto tool to finish trimming the hump off, with a cutting disc, and a sanding attachment. (I went slow) Then proceeded to polish it with varying applications of compound with the moto tool buffing rubbers and cotton discs. It looked like a professional job.

The grips were a labor of love, and the moto tool was a major asset followed by my drill press.

I sold that pistol many years later.
