My 1914 SAA that I received as a 5 1/2” .38 Spl with WWII conversion barrel and cylinder. I swapped one of my parts box .45 Colt 4 3/4” barrels in it that matches the patina pretty well and sent it to Jim. I wanted the cylinder reamed to .45 Colt and his magic worked on the innards. He advised the cylinder was a no-go but he’d be able to put a GW cylinder in. He patina’d the cylinder to match mine, put in a new base pin, replaced the Italian bolt and worked his magic on the rest. The amazing walnut one piece grips came with the gun. She shoots like a dream and looks like a SAA should. Like others have said, speaking to Jim is as much fun as getting your hog leg back. Thanks Jim and thanks everyone on this wonderful forum for providing the Three E’s: education, entertainment and enabling.
