One would've thought that the factory would've fitted them correctly for that price - they had it long enough.
The shims go on the bushing from the rear, then the bushing is seated in the cylinder.
Where will he put the bushings if it’s fixed?

I don't know much but when my horses go to the horse hospital it doesn't take me much to ask for a second or even a third opinionOriginally Posted by LeverActionBill
Bad from Colt? Then a Colt rebuild? Now the gunny sez the hammer and sear are bad? Needin those pesky bushings? It all gets real confusing for us old folk
So far, that SAA cost $1150 - and it's rising - once the so-called 'gunsmith' adds on his charges.
Might've been better to buy Kuhnhausen's book and avoid a 'gunsmith' like this, who may be looking at his customers as prey...
At this point I wouldn't send anything to Colt to get work done, Not even close to the company it was as far as craftsmanship. Sad
This gunsmith has been reliable to me for 20 plus years. He charges me pennies on the dollar.
I have another almost dozen 3rd gens to shoot while this one is lame.
The pressed in bushings are easy to remove and shim up if you have the right tools
why don't you just take it to Peacemaker Specialists just north of you
Eddie Janis does great work, but his signature work is an action job which in my opinion is too light on the hammer. I just want this gun up and running. My gunsmith is slow but he’s good, cheap and there are no shipping costs. This Colt’s is kind of a beater, I’m going to use it in a cowboy match at the end of May and I’m confident the fleas will be gone out of it by then.
