As most forum members know, it is difficult to first find a gunsmith that has expertise with the Colt Single Action Army and then the wait is long. I was one of the folks that tried Dave Chicoine and ended up (16 months later) about $300 poorer and still had a broken revolver. I contacted Tom Sargis Jr. at Bozeman Trail Arms (www.bozemantrailarms.com ) and shipped my 1890 SAA to him on Feb 26, 2015. I was pretty sure that the revolver had a broken hammer notch and Tom send that out for welding. I knew it would take about six months and it was just under; receiving the revolver back on October 8, 2015. Tom’s communication after my revolver got to the head of the que was very good and we did go back and forth with what needed to be done and estimates of cost. I probably had more done that I actually had to but the action job, and replacement of the base pin bushing and a new pin really make the old timer smooth. A picture is below. She is not pretty but she really works well now. Hope to keep it in the family for another 100 years. I do recommend Tom if you need work done but remember to be patient.
