    I am just going to block their posts.
    Yeah, that might be a good idea. The problem is that there will be nobody left to cut through the crap, just look at the comments in the "dragon gun" thread. Somebody scratched a pattern through the bluing, and they're making it sound like the gun was engraved. In yet another thread they're working on guns that "have been burnt in a fire!!!", and I was really excited to see what this would be, Come to find out, the actual damage was just some minor, superficial bluing loss, possibly from being exposed to some kind of fire retardant. Exaggerations like that get old pretty darn quick.

    The sad part is that people buy into it and think they're doing something magic. They do good work, but their sales pitch seem to be geared toward those who don't know crap about gunsmithing.

    Yes it can be cut back to 4" but since you are cutting it back or changing the barrel, why not make it 3" and have something custom and something that many people want and can't be had. It will cost you lot less than $15,000 or some other astronomical number.

    Since it won't be original any longer collector value is gone.

    These barrels should only be cut back from the rear. The sight ramp is tapered, and if you cut the front section off you would also have to weld up and machine a new sight ramp. It wouldn't surprise me if somebody has tried it, but I wouldn't recommend doing that much welding on a barrel.

    Mr. Glenn only works on double actions I believe. Jim Martin is a member here and is a well regarded SAA gunsmith.

    They are trying to clean up now that Colt no longer works on revolvers & that CCS is now down to 2 from 6 gunsmiths.
