How to get more mileage out of a revolver...
Send it to a S&W Gun Smith:
I can now shoot .45 acp from my Special S&W Model 25-5 .45 Colt.
A week ago I mailed TK Customs (http://www.tkcustoms.com[/COLOR]]TK Customs - Custom Painting and Airbrushing) my S&W 25-5 .45 Colt cylinder to be machined so I could shoot .45 acp from the same cylinder. Surprise, surprise (my local PO isn't known for Speedy deliveries) when I went to the mailbox this afternoon there was a box from Tom. Inside it was my cylinder, 10 .45 acp moon clips (marked TK), and a heavy duty moon clip unloading tool. A note on the tool - it is hollow and when you remove a cartridge it is contained in the tool. I had ordered 6 .45 Colt moon clips but they weren't in the box; an oversight that one call to Tom and he is dropping them in the mail, gratis. I call the entire transaction "Old School Quality Customer Service." It was raining so I wasn't able to go shoot the gun today but will shoot it as soon as I get the chance - in both calibers...
Before I had the cylinder modified I had bought the gun of a local Michigan gun forum. A previous owner had sent it to MagnaPort for an action job, porting, and refinishing in their MagnaLife hard chrome finish - about $800 worth of work - and I paid $750 for the gun. Range trip coming up soon.
