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.

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