.500 Bushwhacker Conversions  

You supply the base gun (in this context, a long cylinder Magnum Research BFR. Other suitable platforms, such as the Thompson Center Encore, may also be converted, but in these cases, consultation must precede a quote). A standard conversion entails:  

Rechambering the revolver to .500 Bushwhacker.  

The installation of a Ti Pro Heavy muzzle brake. 

The addition of a new rear sight and rear sight riser, as well as the reinstallation of the front sight atop the brake.  

For a total of $875 + return shipping.  

If you provide a BFR chambered in a cartridge other than .500 S&W, expect an additional fee of $250 for the fitting and installation of a .50 caliber barrel blank. The suitable standard chamberings for our conversions are: .30-30 Win, .444 Marlin, .45/.410, .460 S&W, and .500 S&W (five shot cylinders only).   

.500 Bushwhacker Die Sets 

If you wish to send your .500 S&W loading dies to us for modification to the .500 Bushwhacker cartridge, pricing is $50 + return shipping. Die sets are also available in our store.  

S&W X-Frame Tuning

Cylinder gap reduction service: $150 + return shipping of the firearm.

Muzzle Brake Installation      

If you desire to install a muzzle brake on your firearm, we can accommodate a wide variety of pistols, revolvers, and rifles. Cost will vary depending on the nature of the job and the price of the brake installed. Consult us for feasibility and a quote.   

Rifle Barrel Installation and Chambering

If you would like to have a barrel fitted to your rifle and chambered, expect cost to be in the range of $375-$450, depending on action type and manufacturer. Consult us for a quote.

Ammunition Discount  

If you return the fired cases from our ammunition in good working order, we will discount the cost of the brass from any further ammunition loaded from the cases (the discount varies by caliber, and is specified in the respective product descriptions). While ammunition cannot be shipped by the Postal Service, inert brass cases can be. This is typically the most cost-effective way of returning fired cases. If you are interested in this option, contact us and we'll assist you with the process.    

Special Requests and/or Standard Gunsmithing Services 

Our services are not limited to this list, which we intend to expand with time. If you have a special request, there is a good chance we can assist you or refer you to someone better equipped to do so. In these cases, contact us for feasibility and a quote. It never hurts to ask.

Shipment Policy 

Due to current carrier policies, if you wish to send a firearm to us for customization or maintenance, it may only be shipped to us through an authorized FFL dealer and we must return it to you through an authorized FFL dealer. Unless otherwise requested, return shipments will be made through USPS. All shipments are made 'signature required.' It is best to use a business-hours address where someone will be able to take delivery without special scheduling or arrangements. When shipping, please follow these steps: 1. Remove rails, scopes, and other accessories not necessary to the work. Please make sure the gun is reasonably clean. 2. Package your firearms securely and insure them. See to it that they are unloaded. 3. For additional security when shipping, request a ‘delivery confirmation/signature required’ service. If you wish to verify arrival of your gun at our shop, please retain your package tracking number and contact your carrier. 4. Expect higher prices when shipping from and to Alaska and Hawaii. If you are interested in purchasing our products from outside the United States, contact us for feasibility.
