      Well. I thought it was superbly executed. Who knows, maybe those techniques could be useful to someone else in another area of work.

        -Serious question: Is there a reason you're being a jackass, Evan?

        Your reply to my inquiry in your trailer post was basically "screw you, I'll do what I want!" and your reply here is clearly and unabashedly confrontational, where you're obviously reaching for some- any- excuse to bash me, personally.

        You know that such gun work is quite legal in the United States, you know I live in the United States, and you know this board is owned by a US Citizen and hosted in the United States.

        You're not that stupid, so clearly you're intentionally being a confrontational jackass.

        Why is that?

              Doc,
              That is a nice mod you have done there.

              A customer traded a similar gun (One of the S&W 3" 44 mag Lew Horton customs) in a few years back, right after he shot it, punishing to say the least
              But most of the problem was with his thumb that recently had been bandaged up after losing the end of it, so when he shot it the recoil just jerked back the skin that was wrapped over and stitched to what was left of the end of his thumb.
              Had to hurt
              Still cringe when I think about it.

                  Doc i like the post. I love pictures. I think it was one of the better posts. Maybe a little more description for us NON-Gun people.

                  How long did it take?

                    Beautiful machine-work Doc!
                    What kind of stainless is the 629 made from? Was it hard to turn (and bandsaw)?

                    That little beauty might be a good candidate for some compensating ports, like a Mag-na-port.

                      I think posting information describing activities that are a felony offense is quite a bit more objectionable than my posts of metal fabrication.
                      Not true Evan, a firearm less than 4.1 in. is considered a prohibited weapon in Canada. It is not illegal to own such a firearm if you owned one previous to the last round of Liberal party gun owner bashing. I own several such handguns and I have been grandfathered under the current law. I can acquire as many handguns less than 4.1 in. as I like or sell to others that have been grandfathered under the current legislation.

                      I can also modify one of my handguns which is over 4.1 in. from the restricted class to the prohibited class. This modification would of course mean that I would have to re register the firearm. What a bunch of crap!

                      Anyway Doc, as the others have said beautiful work, wish I could lean over your shoulder for a few hours.

                        Beautiful Work

                        Hello Doc,
                        I think your work is very good. Excellent pictures showing steps of the transition. I have a 7 1/2" super blackhawk that I've had for years. Its my favorite handgun. Recently I shot a S&W with a very short barrel. The accuracy was very good but the report had a great deal more blast. I was using 23 grs of 296 with mag primers and Keith 245 gr semi wadcutters.
                        It would have been a very good for someone who wore it for work.
                        I do quite a bit of work on competition air rifles. My latest is a LG110 Steyr
                        field target rifle set up for bench rest accuracy. Thanks for submitting your work for viewing.
                        Regards
                        Chuck

                          Nice work, If your anything like me the very first cut is the hardest! I always think "I hope this is right!" Then after that first cut it is all down hill from there!

                            I'm not ignoring anyone, I went out to the shop to do some work and just now came back in.

                            -Serious question: Is there a reason you're being a jackass, Evan?

                            You know that such gun work is illegal in most countries including here if you aren't a grandfathered collector/gunsmith. You know that a good many members of this BBS do not live in the USA. You may not know that even accessing such information accidentally on the net is enough to get somebody in trouble with the authorities in some countries. This isn't an excuse to bash. It is a legitimate concern about the appropriateness of this post on an international forum.

                            Since this BBS is intended for an international audience it is only reasonable not to describe activities that are illegal in nearly all other countries.


                            As for me bashing someone, that's funny coming from you. Short memory eh?

                            Also, your "inquiry" was not an inquiry. It was a complaint. There are plenty of threads on this BBS that I never open or read as the apparent content doesn't interest me. I suggest you develop the same habit.

                              Thats all your problem, we dont live under your laws. Knowing the laws of your land is your resposiblity and so is obeying them.

                              We know what the laws are.

                                This isn't a debate about the right to bear arms. It's about what is appropriate content for a forum read around the world with members in many countries. Doc started out by criticizing my fabrication work as inappropriate for this BBS. I am pointing out that this is far less appropriate.

                                Also, let me remind Doc of what it says on the masthead of the web site here:



                                I would say that the part circled in red includes fabrication.
