I purchased a 1sr gen SAA manufactured in 1907, 4-3/4" chambered in 38WCF.  I don't have much knowledge about SAAs, but have been reading lots here.  I will have it in hand hon July1st due to California laws.  However I did notice when I was buying it from an estate that the half cock seems weak.  I was thinking I would like to have someone go through the revolver and deal with any issues before I load for it and shoot it.  I do work on my own 1911s, but never messed with a single action.  The piece is a shooter not being pristine.  I did not detect cylinder play, but there is a good scar from drag.  I watched the action as I cocked it but did not notice the bolt coming up early.  Maybe someone did something else it it in its 110 year history.  I was looking on the internet at this outfit in Paso Robles as it's about a 4-5 hour drive from me.  Peacemaker Specialist.  Anyone familiar with the company and the work?

Eddie Janis of Peacemaker Specialists is one of the very best SAA smiths in the country.
