Don't see any other option...

just chalk it up for loss and just find another smith with a good reputation?
Getting into a peeing contenst with the smith will get you nothing. Since he bluffed you when you picked up the gun, I don't see him getting all remorseful later and addmitting a mistake, let alone giving you any money back.

He might, but I doubt it. But all you have to lose is your time, and travel expenses. I would just write it off as a lost cause, unless, when examined by a competent smith, that smith tells you the gun has been damaged by improper work/assembly.

If that's the case, then the first smith does owe you compensation. Good luck getting it, sadly. You might have to resort to small claims court as a worst case. If that happens, be sure to include the Better Business Bureau as part of the complaint process.

Hope you can get the old Colt working right again.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
