I have an older service pistol that belonged to my grandfather, over the years we've put a lot of rounds through it, while the bore is clean and in good shape the cylinder won't stay in place and needs repair. I wan't to get it fixed and pass it down the line to my nephews. Anyone know a local (East Bay - Sacramento) gunsmith? I appreciate any recommendations.Thanks-Mac

thanks guys. I didn't even think of calling S&W, packed it up and shipped it out. And J&G I called them about modifying my old Browning A5, nice people I will send some business.

I will second J&G if you end up going with them. Good people, and they do good work.

When I had my Model 28,must have put through it some 33K loads.Had it for 13 years or so.Very accurate some ways past 100 yards.
The old calibers and guns got the job doneKeep reloading-We may need it

Any N frame S&W .357mag should last a lifetime with most factory .357mag ammo. I used to have a 6" mod 27-2
