    Yes, ASI has several options for custom sizes.

    Generally not a "do it yourself" project, unless you happen to be a gunsmith. Requires tools and fixtures you likely will not have. Find a good smith, pay him for his labors. You can thank me and buy me a beer later.

    If the price is right! What are your expectations? What ammo are you using?

    I have a 189 series that shoots fairly well. What is your series and what is your problem?
