    S&W gunsmith recommendations?

    Took my new to me M19 out and it appears the crane is bent- any recommendations of who I should send it to?

    +1 for Frank Glenn. He has worked on several S&Ws and a Python for me.

    Thanks for the replies, has anyone sent theirs to Smith and Wesson directly for repairs lately?

    Wow. He was a real character, and a hell of a gunsmith. Sad news.

    The loss of Mr Reichard at Sand Burr Gun Ranch was a blow to all us wheelgun lovers.

    A very big thumbs up regarding Frank Glenn. I have two custom revolvers from him. A friend who is a very serious nationally-known S&W collector recommends him without reservation.

    And by very serious - I mean being able to fill up the bed of a full-sized pickup with pistol boxes. I know, I helped upload it.

    I would call S&W and if they have the parts to replace it I would let them do it.

    Thanks for all the help, I'm sending it to Frank as I might as well get an action job while I'm at it.
