I've got a 44 mag Super Blackhawk with a 7.5" barrel... Love the revolver and think I'll set it up for deer & hog hunting. I'm going to cut the barrel to 6", port the barrel and do a trigger job on it... Before I ship it off to Magna Port, anyone know of anyone in this area that does this kind of barrel work? The trigger is the easy part...

I would leave the Barrel at 71/2.

Nah... It'll balance better being a bit shorter... It may end up at 4 5/8"... Other than appearance and heft... It won't significantly affect performance...

That's Ron Kemp... I had him duracoat a pistol for me... And his trigger work is pretty good. I don't think he does porting but I'll ask him...

The more I think about this though... I might have Magna Port do a Predator conversion on this one...
