    Default Any competent smiths in lower bucks to work on my new Dan Wesson?



    I have had the flu since 2 days after oaks. Thanks sick people.

    As shown in the hand gun section, I got my first Dan Wesson revolver in .22 magnum.

    I'm not new to revolvers and everything checked out at the show. Out of boredom and research, I was manipulating the gun and noticed the hand didn't always engage the cylinder.

    I took the gun apart and noticed that somebody bubba'd the hand spring. New one already on order.

    I also noticed that with a little more force than I would have used prior to the gun being mine, that the single action sear slips.

    I understand theoretically what needs to be done, but would prefer an experienced smith doing the work on the trigger and hammer.

    Any suggestions for reasonably priced his work local to lower bucks? I don't want to dump a ton of money into this.

    Any local people who are skilled in this sort of thing want to chime in?

    Anybody want to work on trade? I kid. But not really.

    Why do people always have to bubba everything nice?

    For anybody who cares, new hand spring installed. I also took a chance on a used hammer and trigger from eBay at a price too good to pass. The gun is fully operational again.

    I know I should be ashamed of myself, but I still haven't been to the range since before the show when I got it. I suck.
