    I wanted to get it rebarreled with a longer barrel after seeing one on another forum that had been modified. I spoke to Kevin the gunsmith and here is what he did for me.
    Its a Schillen match 1x9" 28"long!! I love it. There is no substitute for craftsmanship..Kevin does A-1 work.

    If you run out of ammo you can reach out and poke the target!

    Jeeze, I wish the smith at my local shop was worth a crap. He couldn't even cast a chamber and correctly tell me what it was. I ended up paying for it so I could take it home and cast it myself with crayons. Worked like a champ though. It sure does seem like good smiths are getting harder and harder to come by these days.
