Need North Carolina gunsmith for 1917

Recommended Posts

A friend of a friend in NC picked up a 1917 Colt 45ACP.  Here's a quote about his problem... "Forcing cone side. Cycling through the chambers you can see the gap get smaller then cylinder rubs forceing cone for probably 2 chambers, starts opening back up".  Now, to me that sounds like the cylinder needs to be faced to square it up (all other things being to spec).  That may be a big assumption with such an old revo.  Seems like it must not have been fired much if the problem hasn't been fixed by now.  Just needing a recommendation of a competent gunsmith in the area.  Thanks.

Excessive end shake, you likely just need a shim installed on the crane//yoke where it makes contact with the cylinder. You could likely handle this yourself or any gunsmith that knows how to take apart a revolver could do it.

Aquilla Custom Gun Works in Yadkin did some work for me reasonably. He is/was an instructor at the Montgomery gunsmithing school.
