Thanks, I will gladly tell the one and only Karl Nedbal in Vösendorf/Austria.
Incidentally, I know a young and aspiring gunsmith and conversion artist in Amarillo, TX.
This gentleman has done Centaure LCC custom conversions for a cowboy friend of mine there in the Panhandle.
I am certain he has the potential to do tasks similar to good ole Karl.

Your friend in Texas wouldn't happen to be Gary Barnes would it?

Gary Barnes is an experienced & respected conversion artist.
I am thinking of young Jared Baker of Long Hunter in Amarillo (www.longhunt.com).
I was highly impressed by this pair of Long Cylinder Conversions Jared built for a friend of mine from Belgian Centaures.

Agreed. Gary is awesome.

I had not heard of Mr. Baker. I'll have to look into that. Those long cylinder conversions are pretty amazing.

I am shooting a pair of Centaure Marshal Long Cylinder conversions in CAS regularly since 2012, caliber is .44 Colt.
Mine are 5,5", the ones on the pic that Jared made are Centaure RNMAs cut to 6", also .44 Colt.
