I cut six additional stop slots in a smooth cylinder. Too bad Pietta won't make one.

Jim, be glad they don't. Only drives the value of yours up, like my 'accidental' Schneider & Glassick

A few years ago, I had a pair of Uberti Leech and Rigdons defarbed and restamped to copy a CH Rigdon with 12 stop cylinders and new serial numbers.. To avoid confusion as to their genuine status, they were stamped under the barrel with A.Uberti, date code and original serial number

The bottom photo is of an original
