I'm looking to get either a nice Colt or similiar clone for Cowboy Action Shooting. I'm not crazy about the gun right out of the box so I'd like to have it worked over by a high-end gunsmith. Similiar to, say, Yost-Bonitz for 1911's.

Any recommendations for gunsmiths? I'd prefer a website to check out previous work. Thanks!

Doug Turnbull - and see especially his work with non-Colt from under the Golden Dome - top notch for mechanics and traditional appearance. Several people who do a fine action job to do as much as possible to make the revolver live in competition but only a few who compete with a Signature grade for retro appearance.

I just cracked open my new copy of Taffin's Single Action Sixgun, and quickly went through his chapters on customizing. I have no experience with any of them, but here's a list right from his book to get you started:
