    I have been having trouble finding information on this old revolver. It belonged to my Dad and I have had it since he passed away some 30 odd years ago. I remember him using it to shoot blanks at the ECV get together's back then. It has a hair trigger and is really unsafe to shoot. I've heard that it can be adjusted but since I don't think I would ever use it I haven't had it fixed. I do have about 20 rounds for it but they too are 40+ years old. If anyone out there has any info or some links to info I would be grateful. The SN is 248XXX. Thanks

    Made in 1903, has been reblued.

    I don't know anybody to recommend by name, but it is a standard SAA gunsmithing job. Might require the full cock notch on the hammer to be welded up and recut at a maximum.
    If you know anybody in Cowboy Action Shooting, there are a number of shops working on single actions these days, and he could recommend one.

    That was quick

    Thanks Jim, I'll look around, you would think here in Wyoming there would be a lot of Cowboy shooters. And that was quick, 7 minutes!!
