Fred passed away in 1986.
I purchased part of his inventory from his widow. Fred Patented the short cylinder revolver design.

Thanks for the reply. I'm sorry to hear that Fred Passed. I have some old mags that tested his guns and always wanted one. If you know of anyone that has one for sale please contact me. I sent you a private email.

Jerry,

Are you carrying on Fred Schmitd's work?
A friend of mine has a well worn short cylinder PPC gun he would like overhauled to the original standard.

Fred's work

Jim;

Wow...I came upon this post by pure accident... sorry for not replying sooner..I am not on this forum much any more...Its activity level has drop quite a bit. Anyway, yes, I am quite heavily involved in work similar to Fred's. I cater to the NRA Bullseye and Police PPC competitors. I don't build the short cylinders, primarily because there is really no advantage to them that I can find, other than a reduction in rotating mass when shooting rapid double action. The theory of improved accuracy is just that, a theory. Ransom Rest testing does not prove or show any difference..so the expense of the extra machine work is not worth it..
My backlog has become quite large and I have not been taking any orders for the last 5 or 6 months. I just cleared my revolver back log and expect to be on 1911s for the next year or so..
I have been referring most inquiries to Bob Marvel for 1911 work and Jim Stroh for revolvers.. Jim knew Fred from the APGuild and is familar with his design..
Thanks

Jerry
