    Update; Way back in 1993 or 4 I had a gun smith do a little work on a 1911 for me at the Pasadena Gun Show.
    I found him a again. He only works on 1911's. He is local to the Houston area. I think he is very good. I have spoken to sever others and
    Most have heard of him. He has worked on about 4 of my 1911’s now and I could not be happier.
    His name is John, and if you would like to get a hold of him just shoot me a pm.

    I would strongly recommend Ed Vandenberg of Vanden Berg Custom, www.vandenbergcustom.com/
    He's a member of the American Pistolsmiths Guild and does first rate work at a good price. He's working on a Colt Combat Commander for me right now.

    Does Ed Vandenberg work on SnW Revolvers? I need a 686 fixed up to use Moon Clips.
    Thank you, but for my 1911's, I take my guy. He has worked on several for me and they are top rate.
    Besides he won the World Championship shooting a 1911. I feel he knows how to work on them.

    I don't think Vandenberg does revolver work. I'm looking for someone to rechamber a S&W model 58 for me. If you find a really good revolver smith, please post his name and address.

    +1 on Vandenberg

    Not sure if does work on revolvers. But all it takes is a phone call or an email and ask. I been going to him recently as he is close to where I live and is easy to talk to.

    My only complaint is he does take the copius amount of money I am willing to throw at him.

    "Does it do all that you want it to do?"
    "Yes"
    "Then use that money for more ammo"

    Nice guy and is straight up with you.
