I've gotten a new Bisley that I wanted to send off to Dave Clements for a little custom work.  He does not list the removing of the warning label on his list of services, so I was wondering since I was going to have it bead blasted anyway if this was something that I could do myself.  Has anyone tried to do this, and if so, was it very difficult and what if the best way to do it?

Thanks,

meadhall,

The last time that I looked into this, the most common way was to try to draw the depressed metal back up by using chemicals.  The stamping is rolled at the factory and this I was told was the best way to get rid of it.  It is drawn out as high as possible then machined off.
To machine down as deep as the impressions are would take way to much metal off the the diameter of the barrel.
I am sure that Dave Clements does this, most gun smiths do.  I would just ask him about it before sending the gun to him.
Good Luck and God Bless,
Will

Meadhall; I had David Clements remove the warning off my SBH stainless about 3 months ago. David does fine work.

Hippie44, I've noticed Dave Clements is very reasonable in prices.  If you don't mind me asking, what did the removing of the lettering cost?

Thanks,

Meadhall, It was $25.00 for the stainless. Another service David also does is the freewheeling of the cylinder for $25.00. You can rotate the cylinder either way, very nice when loading. You mite as well get everything done now, because the shipping kills ya. Take Care Hippie

That's not bad at all.  Funny you mention the freewheeling, that was one of the things I had in mind.  The other things were the aformentioned bead blasting, the freewheeling, beveling and sereating the front sight  and having the cylinder chamfered ala` Mountain gun.  I'll add the lettering and should be good to go.

Yeah, I have heard the price of shipping is a bear.

Hey mcumpston, that picture seems mighty familiar, it looks just like the one in the latest issue of American Handgunner, in a article by Mike Cumpston.  Hey, wait a minute.....do you read AH too? <!--emo&:)--><img src="http://beartoothbullets.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'><!--endemo-->


That's a fine gun you have there.

yeh! I read that every now and then. Haven't seen that issue though.  Mail around here is pretty slow. <!--emo&;)--><img src="http://beartoothbullets.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=';)'><!--endemo-->
