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.

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.

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..
