2nd model .38 antique project s&w
Hello everyone, I have a second model s&w .38 top break revolver that I bought as a project a few years back. It's in pretty bad shape and missing most of the internals. The nickel is in pretty decent shape. I don't have the time or expertise to put it all back together, does anyone know of a gunsmith or restoration company around the New York area that might want to help me out?

The only gun smith I knew when I was up there had a shop in Salem New York small little town and you couldn't miss the gun shop. Any pics?

Any gunsmith worth their salt should be able to re-manufacture all the internals from scratch or source parts. The problem is it could cost you quite a bit of money to do this.

I will post pics later on in the day, I had found some websites with all of the pieces I needed available, but like I said I just don't have the time anymore. It's a beautiful piece of history though and I really would like to restore it to functional condition from its paperweight status. I also have an old Iver Johnson as well as a S&W hammer less .32 in similar condition. If I find the right person, those would be the next 2 projects.
