    Yes I remember doing that and have the brownell stuff somewhere. I did it on the 5.5" Bisley in the pic. It came with a 45 acp cyl. Some need it some do not. I think it was just a few years that had problems. Some of the newer Vaqueros did not need it and of course the Freedom Arms were good to go. It seems I just enlarged the forcing cone. It has been a few years. I only use 300 grainBuffalo Bore in the Bisley guns. I do use 400 grain Hornady in the Linbaugh...that takes some technique...and gloves are good. I carry that gun when hiking in Montana.

    That looks like the chamfering tool kit?

    What I'm looking to do is just open up the throats within the cylinder walls as described here.

    I was just looking for additional conformation that this type of modification is rather common and easy to do yourself.

    I have two buddies who are also considering doing this so we can just split the cost of the reamer and pilots.

    IMG_0792.JPG IMG_0803.JPG Looks like you have a few of the Accusport/Lipseys offerings there.
    I never found the 44, but have the 357, 41, and 3 of the 45 Colts.
    A couple of mine:
    Dave Clements Vaquero 45 Colt with Roy Fishpaw Panels, and a 45 Colt Accusport with Cary C panels. Removed the goofy looking engraving on the cylinder

    Nice... still can't figure out the bare feet thing. I'm jealous. I do go without shoes for most of our long 6 weeks of summer. It's supposed to be above freezing this weekend so maybe I'll give it a try...:D

    Its not that I lack the Y chromosome. Its that I lack the $ chromosome. Believe me I want some single action goodness.

    So I got my SP101 back from Ruger today. They replaced the crane assembly. When I got home I loaded up with snap caps and went to do some dry fire practice. The trigger didn't want to go double action. It would move a hair and just stop like there was a stop. I went to go single action and the hammer was rough coming back. I pulled the trigger and the hammer dropped but the trigger stayed all the way back. I went single action several times with the same result. Then I tried double action which was rough but would now go. So I just started cycling in double action. Everything started working and feeling almost as it was before the crane issue. Almost! It still feels a little rough. I'm really thinking that a full lube job is needed. What I'm going to do is go to the range in the morning and go thru a couple hundred or so rounds of 357 mag. See what happens then. If everything goes well then I'm going to do a full breakdown, cleaning, polish some points and lube her up.
    We shall see.

    That is a shame about your Ruger and i do not understand why Ruger can not get it fixed! I hope you get it fixed and if you do not i would get rid of it because you can not trust your life on it and i think Ruger should give you a new one for what you have been thew!!

    They did fix the problem which was the crane but is it possible that it had a rough trip across the country while on its way back to me which possibly caused something inside to be a lil off but went back in alignment once I started cycling it?

    Dang! Just..Dang! KMC for the win. All I have is a rebuilt 686 Smith and a Ruget BH with the blue burned off the muzzle from the rounds sent thru it. Weirdly I can't find a single pic either.

    I learned on a ruger single six 22 cal when I first started shooting. I have since got a number of squirrels with it. I assume this is why I like wheel guns better

    That drool on your shoulder is me looking over it. I love the GP100 frame and that 6" barrel is just bad-ass.
