Need Python smith

I had a local gunsmith replace a broke cylinder stop on my Python. The action is now completely off time. I need a master gunsmith to work on this gun. Reeves Junkin in Austin did the original action job back in the early 80's.

These days, few people still know how to work on the old Colt action, and finding parts is getting near impossible for key parts.

In your other post I recommended the Colt factory, Frank Glenn, and Cylinder & Slide. For a repair, I'd give the same recommendation with Colt first.
The only caution is, Colt may want to un-do the work Reeves did, since they restore guns back to factory original condition as a liability "thing".
Talk to them about this, and if they say they'd need to change things, go with one of the other two.
