Gunsmith Work




   Just wanted to tell you that I received my two Custom Ruger Blackhawks. The "Ultimate Short Stroke" job that you did on them is phenomenal. I own several sets of short stroked guns that have been done by all the supposed "greats" and yours are the shortest and best feeling of them all. Thanks for yet another great Classic Single Action product.
