    I've got a snubnose S&W revolver, and am wanting one with a longer barrel. There's a dude here selling a longer barrel to fit my gun, but I'm guessing that this isn't like changing uppers on an AR, and is something that would need to be done by a gunsmith. Anyone know how difficult/expensive it would be to have that done?

    I'm sure it would end up costing more for the barrel and gunsmithing than I'm willing to pay, but I figured it's worth checking into.

    thanks

    thanks

    Sounds like that isn't a viable option then.

    Anyone got a recommendation for a gun smith to do work like this on an Old Model Blackhawk?

    I need to have a barrel pulled, front sight removed, barrel cut and crowned then a new sight installed. I have the front sight, but don't have a good idea who to ask about this. The couple of gunsmiths I've asked haven't seemed to interested to do it.

    I'm sure the OP and I would both like to find some real pricing on a job like this.
