Single Action Gunsmith?


Recommended Posts

It's been nearly 15 years since I've needed some Single Action work.  And the guys I would have used have retired.  This is a Colt  Signature Series 1851, the lockwork, modified to use a Ruger hand spring & plunger has gotten itself out of time, the bolt won't stay down at half-cock.  If you were sending YOUR Colt off to get work, who would you send it to?

Longhunter would be my first call as he is here in Tx

 

Lefty Wheeler for the same reason.

 

45 Dragoon

 

Goon's Gun Works

Alan Harton (Houston) or Joe Perkins (Tucson), if they can fit it in their schedules.

 

Good luck, GJ

Dutch, I'm sorry to say Eddie passed away recently. 


So, will Peacemaker Specialties survive?  They were the best source for some Colt parts.  He was not my choice for smithing, but I spent a good deal with him on parts. 
 

Sorry to hijack the thread.

AFAIK, the parts business will continue until the inventory is depleted.

For a black powder revolver, Bill Kelly is a good source. He does the VTI/Krist Konverter work.  Good turnaround time, when I did a conversion, about 2 Weeks.

I second, Alan Harton of Single Action Service in Houston, TX.  One of the premier Colt and Ruger Single action gunsmiths.

 

Snake Oil George does some fine work, up in Oklahoma, as well has some excellent octagonal barrels.
