Very nice. What all did you have done to it after Smith Perfomance? I know you mentioned when you got it who you were going to send it to but I suffer CRS.

I got what Mr. Bob calls "wild willy" action job. Radis trigger, installed strain screw lock, chamfer the cylinders, and bobbed the hammer.

Very nice! I didn't know you were a wheel-gun guy.

What do you use that for? ICORE? or just a range toy?

I'll trade you a mint Jimenez Arms .25 for it.

Thanks Jimmy, this is a real gun lol. Don't need no hi-cap mags.
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Real gun my...... :rotflmao: Just kidding! I'm actually kinda jealous, that's a sweet lookin' revolver. I'm just not a revolver guy, yet! I'm sure if I ever got into it, I would be hooked on that too! It's all just too addictive.

Back on topic, sure hope all this lapping is worth it. I'm tired of it. For those who don't know this is the process.

Shoot 1 time clean x10
shoot 2 times clean x10
shoot 3 times clean x10
shoot 4 times clean x10--where I'm at
shoot 5 times clean x10
shoot 6 times clean x10

Man, I hate to say it, but I really doubt it is in a pistol barrel, especially one that will be used for ICORE. What are supposed to be the benefits from doing it? I imagine it is already more than accurate enough for ICORE, and I don't see what doing that will do that putting a bunch of rounds down the bore won't do. Easier to clean? How bad does it foul now? My vote would be just to shoot the thing and enjoy it.

Will yes it's like doing a rifle.


Bryant it is a whole lot easier to clean and doesn't foul the barrel nearly as bad as it did. The benefits are supposed to be tighter groups. To be honest I'm getting tired of it, but if it's worth it I want it to do it right and it be accurate. I'll get through the 4shots and then I will shoot a 5 shot group and see how it looks. The bore already shines like a mirror.

Gotcha. I'm just curious if you will be able to tell a difference in accuracy. I tried David Tubb's "Final Finish" bullets on one of my barrels and didn't really notice a change in accuracy.

As far as cleaning, I pretty much stopped cleaning my stainless pistol barrels that I shoot jacketed through a long time ago. Why not, the barrel manufacturer suggests that cleaning may be worse than shooting? LOL. See Wil Schuemann's article here: http://www.schuemann.com/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=3zZ4oir3t50%3d&tabid=67&mid=445

I just clean the chamber and the feedramp now and then, followed by pulling a bore snake through to get out any loose stuff from the chamber and have seen no degradation in accuracy that I can tell in lots of rounds. It actually looks pretty "clean" if you look down the bores now.

I think with that revolver you should be shooting 8 shot groups or at least marking and using the exact same 5 chambers for a 5 shot group. Using different ones could, at least theoretically, skew groups one way or the other and provide incorrect results. I have heard of revolvers with some chambers bored slightly off in the cylinder that affected groups. I doubt your Performance Center piece would have that issue, but it is something to think about.

Let us know if it makes a difference that you can tell.

Just for consistency's sake, I agree with Bryant.

There's so much that has to be perfect with a revolver that you'd get more accurate (as in results, not the actual shooting) data.

I agree with y'all. But I should be good to go as Mr. Bobby with over it with a fine tooth comb. It's the best trigger you can get on a comp wheel gun.
