Notice to my current and future customers ~ Starting on 1 January, 2014 this ol' website will disappear for a bit. My local ISP/domain server is going out of business. I can only imagine why. Until I get set up with a new service provider and/or possibly redo my website it will be down and gone. BUT.....I am still here, still in business, still working on your guns and if my usual e-mail address gets you no response (don't know yet how that will work) you can still contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org as a "temporary" e-mail address. Thank you for your patience in this matter. It should only last a few days I would think.
Merry Christmas and a very Happy and Healthy New Year!!!

hether broken and needing repair, or just slickin' up to performance levels, this is THE place to send your Cowboy type guns, they'll be treated right here, they're all treated as if they were my own. Colt S.A.A.'s of all generations (yes, even Colt "Cowboys"), ANY of their Italian (or U.S. made) clones, Remingtons, all the cap and ball black powder revolvers, Beretta Stampedes (including their own unique over-rotating problems), Ruger Vaqueros and Blackhawks (even the new .32 H&R's), Merwin & Hulberts and all the leverguns; Winchesters, Ubertis, and Marlins too. Properly REPAIRED and/or made to perform better, usually last longer, and just plain FEEL GOOD (or as John Taffin said, "I'll make 'em sing a sweet tune"!). And I've been working on the Italian copies since the days when just about no one else would! Some people still don't! Extremely experienced not only in the Western Cowboy guns but with the weapons of Military and Law Enforcement. C'mon in, and have a look around. Take a look at the grip pictures, you might just like 'em and want a pair for YOUR gun. Check out my gunsmithing services and very competitive pricing (downright inexpensive!), and learn a little about me and my work. Work that has been recommended and written about by a LOT of people, and some 'big' names too, for a reason. I do a very good job with a fast turnaround averaging 3 to 4 months (it varies depending on weather a/o illneses)! And if your pistola needs a little sprucing up, the refinishing section talks about what you can have done right now, and what will MAYBE, SOON be available. So right here, you can get it working better, and LOOKING better too! Therefore, remember to take a peek at the "refinishing section" to see if there's something you should get done while I have your gun here and apart, like fire-bluing the screws for instance!
think you should also be aware that my work has been mentioned in Shooting Times Magazine on MANY occasions by Mike "Iron Duke" Venturino, also in Shotgun News, in Steve Garbe's Black Powder Cartridge News, and issues #20, #23, #24 and again in #27 of Guns of the Old West (Denis Prisbrey), by John Taffin in the American Handgunner (Mar/Apr 2001, pg.48), in SHOOT Magazine (issue #14 Jan/Feb. 2002), the April 2005 issue of GunWorld Magazine and now the July/August 2005 issue of American Hangunner, the Iron Duke's new "home". I really don't mean to sound like I'm bragging but that should all say something I reckon'. None of those magazine writers got any work from me for free. They all PAID and waited like everyone else (like Hank Williams Jr and Clint Smith too).
lso, probably one of the most important things of all during these ongoing "trying times", I'm priced fairly. If while looking through the site you have any questions, just click the link to the "contact info page" below and you can e-mail or write me!
