Dear Marshall and company, just to a note to let you know how the fire
lapping went on my .45 colt blackhawk. Not being a very handy guy, I
approached this project with some trepidation. With the help of your
technical guide and my few email questions the project was a success! I
checked the bore after firing 75 lapping loads and all the indicators were
there so I stopped. I did reslug the barrel and .002 of constriction was
gone and the slug went smoothly through all parts of the barrel. I only had
time to shoot 6 shots through it as it was getting dark but I could see a
marked improvement in accuracy. Thank you again for your help on this
project. I have learned more from you and your website than I have in 10
years of reading magazines and articles. I probably should have posted this
as there might be others contemplating this project as I did. Thank-you
again for your advice and help.
