Can anyone tell me about the revolvers customized by John Jovino? Most I've seen are .44's and say "Effector" on the barrel. How good was the work? Thanks.

I think he was a distributor, like Lew Horton, not a gunsmith.

I did a search on S&W forum and found some good info. Thanks.

That's right, he was just a distributor. His shop is the one that's in all the 70's & 80's cop shows set in NYC. It's the one with the big wooden revolver hanging from the awning of the shop

Yup, check out "Serpico" with Al Pacino. He buys a Browning HP from Jovino's shop.

John Jovino had a 'smith do the conversions; I have never seen this 'smith named, but his work was quite good. I had a Jovino Effector in .45 ACP. It didn't work too well for me, as my hands are just not quite big enough for N-frames.

John Jovino is the only gun store in NYC.

They are the NUMBER ONE SOURCE of crime guns in NYC as well.

A store staffed by NYC finest retired and off duty, A store where you must show your NYPD ID or your NYC gun permit to even go inside.

Actually it is the only gun store in MANHATTAN.

MORE BULLS*IT.... although you do need to show a pistol permit to TOUCH A HANDGUN...
