Russ123,
  Well, I don't call myself a "Smith"  I'm a tuner. Even though I correct "what needs fixin' to make it right", I'm a tuner. It's the way I was taught .  .  .   you are welcome to visit my website and Instagram feed to see " what's up".

Yes, I make each one for the revolver it is going in  .  .  . "it's custom" !!!! Same with the coil springs and action stops and  .  .  .   you get the picture .  .  .   The main thing is that I'm very anal !!!! Very .  .  .  (to a fault !!!)

  Eddie Janis (of Peacemaker Specialist) used to offer it but I don't even see it on his site anymore .  .  .  he was one of VERY few that even offered it!! I always install one along with an action stop!  These two items are (to me) extremely important for longevity and reliability!!  .  .  .  Whatever .  .  .   with these , you don't need to worry about "cocking softly" you can "let'er Rip !!! 

Mike

I would say; being "anal" for a Top Notch precision Tuner like yourself is what separates the men from the boys or for that matter, the old kitchen table gunsmith, like me...... Thanks for the laugh!  To me, you, as a "Tuner", is as good as a smith in your own specialized form.

Custom? I'm sure.... I would love to visit your site and see what's there that I could learn from. What's your URL?

I browsed your site. I see now. I'm currently waiting delivery of my Uberti 1872 Open Top Colt. I may be getting with you. Enjoyed the gallery.

I do all kinds of goofy things almost daily.   I've started making DIY videos and uploaded them to YouTube.   I'm in the process of editing a video now - splicing clips included here and pictures and narrative. 

If I were to do this again,  I think instead of a drill shank,  I'd either make a rounded punch or use the edge of a combination wrench with about the same radius.   One problem I had was accidentally bumping the "post" on the hand and dinting the edge that I had to hone off.  Something taller would have saved me from this accident.

This is not a method of my invention.  I found references to the procedure in AGI course and other places - including consulting friends knowledgeable in gun repair.

Link tour YouTube channel?
