    Excellent work. I'm a sucker for those older Model 60s.

    Just noticed this, THIS isn't a fix. The wedge bears against the rear of the barrel slot and against the front of the slot in the arbor. That's how the two assemblies stay together under tension. If the wedge is contacting the rear and front of the slot in the barrel, it can't apply correct tension to the arbor. The revolver will not perform as it should and will "shoot loose".
    The correct fix would be to make a suitable wedge to fit the two main contact surfaces . . . the forward surface of the slot in the arbor and both of the rear surfaces of the slot in the barrel assembly.

    What methods did you use to remove the dents and damage from the butt stock on that model 70?
