One time a guy brought in a truly ancient and collectable Smith & Wesson .44 spl. revolver, the old "triple lock" variety, and this one was missing the cylinder hand.
It took me almost nine months to find and obtain the part. ( Numrich Arms finally came through ) and several days to get it fitted, and time the revolver. The work was nightmarish as I knew that I would only have one chance to get it right.
I finally got it ready to go, test-fired it, cleaned it up and called the customer, hoping he was still alive after all of that time, as he was quite elderly.
He was thrilled when he picked it up - but I have never been so happy to see something go out the door. - The thing had been in the shop for nine months.
Kind Regards, Salvo
When you are dead, you won't even know that you are dead... It's a pain only felt by others.
- Same thing when you are stupid.
