A LGS has a SBH converted to 500 S&W in the used gun section. Looks to be well done. Anyone know who may have done the work? No markings on the barrel other than the caliber?

Well done, but not well enough to put their name on it.

I suppose it might be marked under the grip panel.

That is a lot of cartridge to consider the possibility it may have been done by a amateur gunsmith. They could be a talented artist, but a poor engineer. I would want the confidence in knowing they had a very thorough understanding of metallurgy.

I know some very good "amateur" gunsmiths! I bought the gun and it's more refined than any standard Ruger production revolver. And oh yeah.......it shoots like a champ!
