Do most guys buy used or have them custom made? If you have them custom made, by whom. I have been shooting for three years now with a stock 686 and I think its time to move up. I have been looking for a good used one, but have not run across one yet. Can you recommend a gunsmith that will custom make one for me, preferably with a webpage I can check out?

thanks

I have not had much luck finding web pages on PPC guns.

I just had one made, though.

I bought a model 10 S&W, 2' barrel. From there I added what I wanted from Brownells. It cost me about 550-600 total.

Also, there was an ad on here for a PPC gun and holster.

My PERSONAL opinion, which if you add a dollar will get you coffee, is that I shy away from the .357 caliber. To me, it adds a bit of unnessecary space between the bullet and the cone. I stick with .38 caliber.

Good luck!

Jim,

I have had great success with a Mod. 10 Smith built for me by George F. Long, out of Rogue River, OR. When I went looking to have a gun built - I went to the Top 100 Pistolsmiths list from American Handgunner magazine. You can research the list on-line. Several commented they did ppc conversions but after a lot of calls and questions, I narrowed it down to George Long.

He can be reached at 541 476-7552. I went with a 6" slab sided w/full underlug barrel, Aristocrat Tri-Set Rib, ball detent yoke lock, chambers chamfered and of course an action job. He reblued the entire weapon when completed.

It shoots beautifully - I am more than pleased with it and will probably have him build me another shortly.

One other note - George is a great pistolsmith but you won't find a website for him - not even and email address - everything is confirmed via postal... Good Luck!

I recommend Bruce at http://www.bcarmory.com . He built me a great gun at a fair price. If I could shoot as good as my gun is, I'd be great...

JIM CLARK DOES MAKE AN EXCELLENT PPC REVOLVER. AT NATIONALS THIS YEAR, CLARK HAD A BOX FULL OF BARRELS HE GOT FROM KEN EVERSULL. EVERSULL WAS ONE OF THE BEST EVER AT BUILDING BULL BARREL REVOLVERS. I DON'T HAVE HIS NUMBER AT MY DESK NOW BUT IF YOU DIAL INFORMATION AND ASK FOR CLARK CUSTOM GUNS IN SHREVEPORT LOUISIANA YOU'LL HIT PAY DIRT.
