In FS#246, Ed states that “a cottage industry has developed reaming Ruger cylinders".  I have a 36 cal black powder revolver that has 0.374 cylinders that I want to ream out to around 0.380.  I imagine the services provided only ream to standard sizes - .357, .44,.45- but thought maybe somebody might do custom sizes. Would like to talk to any gunsmith who reams cylinders.  Any suggestions?  Cove

Doug Phillips (DougGuy) has done cylinder work for me. Top Notch work and fast turn around.  Gp

Sounds like Doug is the guy (no pun intended) I need to talk to. Thanks for the information. Bill Duncan (Cove)
