--No I am not lost, this is not a call for help, or even for more round gun work haha, but I had to share this one before returning to our regularly scheduled sliders--

To call this flavor of Custom Revolver work anything short of Ted Yost inspired would be criminal, I Appreciate his advise while I put this one together for a good client.
-- KGB Customs Take on a Yost Custom S&W 28-2 --
--Primo Leather rig Care of Milt Sparks with Angle carving--

Bullet points on the Workup:
-28-2 4" Highway Patrolman
-Roundbutt back of frame
-Fit and reshape OEM Presentation grips to fit, reduce flare at base to give some palm swell, refinish in oil
-Chamfer and reduce OEM Target Hammer
-Reduce width of and round face of OEM Target Hammer
-Slight Black powder chamfer to Cyl nose
-Yost Gold Line Front, cut front ramp for pin in install
-Hamilton Bowen RC Rear sight
-Tune action for clean DA and crisp SA trigger
-Chamfer charge holes
-Crown muzzle
-Recut forcing cone
-Knock off any sharp corners
-Blued finish
-Probably some other stuff I forgot

Ted is one of the givingest, that is a fact.

If I was a Texas small town lawman, I'd be havin' this! Yeah-- I really would, and I could. I know this because I know just such a guy who has a very similar rig (but with a Delta Elite in it last I knew).
