    Cylinder reaming services.

    Anyone on here ream revolver cylinder throats?
    Got a NM Blackhawk 45 cylinder that needs the throats opened up.
    I'll be a nice to you as you'll let me be, or as mean as you make me be.

    Polite society started dying the day it was no longer necessary for rude men to physically defend themselves from the consquences of their actions or words.

    DougGuy, indeed. He posted here a while ago that he no longer reams throats, but hones them on his Sunnen machine. Superlative results.

    If anyone needs contact info for DougGuy and is unable to find it on this site after PMing him, contact me.

    He has done multiple jobs for me, very satisfied.
    The ENEMY is listening.
    HE wants to know what YOU know.
    Keep it to yourself.

    Last I read Dug was not reaming them anymore. He purchased a Sunnen hone and hones them now. That is a better method than reaming.

    It’s not good to shoot a patron... they cut off their support unless they already had you in their will.

    Thanks fellas, y'all are too kind!
    Got a .22 .30 .32 .357 .38 .40 .41 .44 .45 .480 or .500 S&W cylinder that needs throat reaming? 9mm, 10mm/40S&W, 45 ACP pistol barrel that won't "plunk" your handloads? Shoot me a PM! Also on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Cylinderhone-756429174391912/

    Another recommendation for Doug Guy. He's done several cylinders for me. Happened to pass through the area where he lives, and he graciously accommodated me to do the work right then & there. Thanks Doug.

    Al, you did the same thing I did. Our son is in Wake Forest and when we visited him I stopped by Doug's place with both of my 1911's. He got them running well.

    There is no 'right' that requires me to work for you or you to work for me!
