    A friend of mine wanted to change a barrel on a Python since he saw my custom gun and I told him not to do it but he didn't listen to me. I told him I had a special wrench bracket for the barrel and a frame bracket that you place the frame into and fasten it by a vice to not damage the gun but as any hard headed person can relate, he decided to take the barrel off on his own. So, that being said he placed the barrel in the vice with a leather belt and popped the cylinder out and stuck a aluminum bar and twisted the barrel off. While doing so he slightly bent the frame off center. I looked at it and placed it into my bracket to see how bad it was. It's not too bad if you know how to repair it. I don't have the tools to repair the gun. Can you fix it?

    Keeping an eye on nickel repairs for the future. Very nice work. If you find something that has been abused a bit. You may have recourse on a new finish. Very nice to know.
