Have a 1st generation 45 that has family history. Need to have some repairs done for safety and to continue its occasional enjoyment. After a thorough amount of research here on the Forum it appears to be a small number of capable individuals more than able to do the work. This would include Harton, James, Martin ,Lanara, Peacemaker Specialist, etc.

From the experience of others would there be any particular sway of decision one way or the other in any of these possibilities ? Whats your experience, whether it be backlog, particular skill set, specialization of work, etc.

Majority of the services will involve the cylinder and all its operational parts, bolt, hand, etc - it is pretty tired

Thanks
Shane

IMO, Jim Martin is always the first choice when it comes to SAA repair. He's been working on SAAs since the 1950s, and literally helped write the definitive book on Colt Single Action Army repair and service. Excellent turn around time and you won't find more fair pricing for the work. As an added bonus, any conversation with Jim is a true pleasure and learning experience.

Best regards,

we do have several fine folks on this Forum that can do the work you need. I have used Jim Martin several time on my SAA revolvers. I had one that was a total "train wreck" on the inside it came back in about 2-3 weeks in perfect working order.

The others are also good SAA gunsmiths that will do a great job you will be happy with. I suggest you talk to a couple of them and make your decision who to sent to!!!!
