Open top action work


Myron Swaim

Recommended Posts

Howdy all, I have been hankering to try a pair of open tops, shooting Classic Cowboy. But I would need them slicked up a bit, maybe have the hammers “lowered” for easier duelist shooting with my old thumbs. Does anyone know who the resident gunsmith guru is for open tops? 
Thanks, 

Myron

+1 for Ken Griner , Griner Gunworks.  I have two pair of open tops done by Ken. Both with action work, corrected arbors and lowered hammers .

Give him a call.

Boomstick Jay did mine, excellent work! He did them in 2015, been my main match guns ever since. Trouble free, plus he’s a great guy and a vet

+1 for Boomstick!

Mike at Goongunworks does great cap gun work .

I know he does some open top work too.

But I don't believe he does custom work your asking for on your hammers .

Hi Myron

Hope to meet you at Wisconsin State later this month. Boomstick lowered the hammers on my USFAs.

Whoever it is you best call. 

 

I've tried emailing both Goons and Griner and just got crickets. Someday I'll get around to calling and sending in my gun. The last bit of work I had done was by Longhunt's black powder guy, but he's since moved onto aerospace stuff IIRC. He moved on maybe a week before I called to send in a newly purchased Uberti '51 Navy. Bummer for me, he did great work.

As an Aside.  I would also like to mention, the Uberti Open Top is a Chameleon.  Once the Barrel to Arbor Fit is corrected "at" the Arbor, the Open Top frame can be retro fit with any of the three available cartridges simply by swapping out the Cylinders and Barrels.  .38, .44 and .45 ALL on the same frame.  Once the Arbor fit is corrected, just minor fitting will be necessary.
