Some may remember a project S&W Highway Patrolman I had Customized.
http://smith-wessonforum.com/s-w-revolv ... g-6-a.html

Well, I am pleased to announce there is a sequel, and it is finished!

I purchased this S&W Highway Patrolman from a Sergeant I work with for $200.00. It had a 6" barrel that had a buldge in it, had some rust, and minor pitting.
Overall it was a good solid S&W revolver.
This is the way the Highway Patrolman looked originally. It's hard to tell from the photograph, the buldged barrel.

This has been a project, about 1.5 years in the making.
I purchased a 4" barrel. The Highway Patrolman was then taken to Mag-Na-Port for the project. http://www.magnaport.com/

Customizing the Highway Patrolman:
*Barrel was cut & crowned to 2.75"
*Front sight was re-installed
*Cylinder & Slide Extreme Duty rear sight installed http://www.cylinder-slide.com/index.php ... ef=CSM1368
*Grip frame was converted to a "round butt"
*Barrel & cylinder were sent to Bowen to be bored out to .44 Special http://www.bowenclassicarms.com/
*Custom Elk Horn grips by patrick Grashorn http://www.grashornsgunworks.com/
*Trigger job, and blue refinished.

Prior to being finished, Mag-Na-Port had me pick up the Highway Patrolman. I took it to the range, and fired it to make sure the sights were "regulated".
They were, it fired just fine.

Just came accross this thread, and that HP is stunning. Will Magnaport do full custom builds on revolvers?
