Corresponded with Cor-Bon online. They had shipped the revolver to S&W. S&W smiths say the revolver frame is fine, and intend to mount a new barrel. They have assured Cor-Bon that they will only ship a 100% weapon. Unfortunately, S&W haven't given Cor-Bon or me a timeline yet. Will update when I get a shipping date, and again when I have received and tested the revolver.
