Are there any smiths that will install this cylinder retainer on a NM V

I have a new model vaquero. Iíve bought the Keith #5 frame from power custom and am working on installing it as well as some of there other goodies. However one thing keeps catching my eye and that is the cylinder pin release or retainer on an actual #5. Itís quite nice and unique. Are there any smiths out there that install these on vaqueros?

Go to belt mountain base pins.com. They sell a #5 pin. They are oversized, but only slightly, and are usually a drop in fit. I like the locking models. That way, you don’t have to worry about the base pin constantly coming out. The owner, Kelye, is a very nice, helpful guy.

I have theirs and power customs pins. Both are great. Iím looking for the rotating lever below the pin that holds the pin in place. Iíve seen them done on colts. Was hoping someone knew of a few Rugers that this had been done to and where?

Sorry for the misunderstanding! I am pretty sure all of the top revolver smiths will do this. Hamilton Bowen at Bowen classic arms, Jack Huntingdon at advanced gunsmithing, or Bobby Tyler at tyler custom guns, should be able to do this. I think it is very expensive as the old hole needs to be welded up and ground smooth, in addition to the new machine work.

Well the money is not a big deal. Iíve been saving for this build for a while. Iíll look into advanced, Bowen never seems to be taking orders. Iíve tried a number of times now.
