Colostomy: Did you actually read the OP? I thought I made it pretty clear what my intentions were, and that I was planning to take it to the gunsmith. I also thought that it was pretty apparent that I submitted this simply for the purpose of having a discussion on something I'd not dealt with before. Furthermore, I also indicated [in post #5] that the gunsmith will not charge me for the work, because I'm letting him use the gun for instructional purposes in the class he teaches.
