Default Recommend a Single Action Gunsmith

I do some work myself, but usually its swapping parts, or polishing contact points, or mounting sights. I'd like to accurize a Bisley 44 - chambers, cone, end play, bore lap, trigger, pawl, etc. but I think I'm willing to send it off. Anyone you'd recommend? Thanks!

you could try dave clements but I don't know if he or any of the gunsmiths do small projects like that anymore. If I had a good budget id look at Hamilton Bowen or Ben Forkin. Those two and the linebaughs are in my opinion the best but like I said I doubt there going to fool with anything short of a full blown custom and even if they do there waiting list is probably a couple years out.

Thanks, I'd worked with Bowen in the past but figured this was "beneath" his usual work. I really don't want to buy the tools to do the work myself as its only going to be this one job, so I am hoping to find a good quality but lesser known? smith.

Clements and Gallagher have both done work for me a few times. Certainly would;t hesitate to use one of them again.

Gary Reeder / Reeder Custom Guns, Scottsdale AZ will help I'm sure. I have half dozen of his guns and a several contender/encore barrels.

I had a Uberti tuned by Oglesby and Oglesby, and can recommend their work. Been a while, though.
