S&W revolvers can be converted to several different calibers. .357 to .44 Special, .41 Magnum to .45 Colt, .44 Magnum to .45 Colt, etc. Factory barrel is rebored and cylinder linebored and rechambered. Endshake set to minimum. Barrel is refitted to frame after rebore to improve barrel/cylinder gap, recrowned, and forcing cone cut to 11 degrees. Base price is $550 on a stainless gun and $600 on a blue one. Action work and taller front sight, if needed, along with barrel shortening are extra. I can convert the M27 & 28 to .45 ACP or 10mm/.40 S&W. Cost for these conversions is $50 extra. Both would use moon clips.
I am currently only accepting N-frame cal. conversions. I cannot do action work on newer guns with MIM parts. If the back of the trigger has cavities cast in it, then the gun is a MIM gun and not suitable.
Barrel shortening- from $185 S&W has changed the front sight several times over the years. Sometimes I can remount the factory front, while other times a new front will need to be fabricated. Action work- from $75 Recolorcase hammer and trigger- $25 each Ball/crane lock- $40 Pinned blade front sight conversion- $90 Install new blade in guns with plunger type or pinned front sight bases- $50
Please call about any S&W work before sending gun.
