Gunsmith in SOMD?

Need some front sight work on an old S&W Model 13.

Any suggestions about a reliable

Curtis Miller (Precision Gun Works) can do pretty much anything. Assume he's still operating. Haven't been there in ages, which makes me a d!ck I guess, cause he's a really cool dude and only a couple of miles from me ...

No complaints from me and never heard any from others either. Call first ... bring dog treats.

Well, I just picked up this old 13-4 for
use as a bang-around house gun
(Used to carry a 13-3 on the job
decades ago)...or,
rather I will, soon...gotta do the 77 paperwork and waiting period...the
front sight seems loose and appears
to be separating from the barrel...figure
on getting that fixed and getting the
guts tuned up.

Nanjimoy is a hike as I am in Calvert
County, but with a solid reputation like
Mr. Miller seems to have, it is worth the drive since my wife's family is from there
and we can kill a couple of birds, so to
speak.

Thanks, guys!

13-4, fixed sight if I'm not mistaken?

If so, could you post a pic of the front sight? I'm curious to see what's going on there.

Inkd, am trying to post a picture...
so far, that task has proven to be
beyond my limited capabilities.
Still trying to figure out what I am
doing wrong.

If the picture is on your computer, drop down below where you're typing your message to where it says "Additional Options", then click on "manage attachments". Another window will pop up and you can browse your computer for the picture or if you have it uploaded to a site like Flicker you can just enter the URL then upload.

If the picture is too big it will fail to upload, with message "This site can't be reached" (at least for me).
Not sure what the size limit truly is (the "posted" size in the manage attachments window isn't accurate).
I size mine to be 1250 pixels wide and that always seems to work.
The "Paint" application is the easiest tool to use to resize things.
