    What does something like this cost? Also, and recommendations in the NW Metro ATL area (Cobb, Fulton, Douglas, Cherokee, DeKalb, Gwinnett)?

    Revolvers are a different animal that semis, and one would want it checked out before just loading up a cylinder and shooting.

    No rush, just trying to gather info for now.

    I can only think of one in your area. I don't know if it extends to wheelies, but I think DKing likes the guy at Adventure Outdoors for autos. Maybe PM him?

    There is the owner of Deercreek off of Fairground in Marietta,near the Square, I really like when it comes to older guns.

    What costs can I expect to have it checked out and get an opinion as to its working order - a round/ballpark estimate?

    "OUTSTANDING" for his gunsmithing ability.

    I have no clue what it would cost but I do wonder why you are needing the gun inspected.

    Is it an old gun? Does something not look quiet right?

    You don't have to answer, I'm just curious.

    You should be able to call anyone listed here and get a general estimate on the cost before you go.

    "Old" H&R revolver, but bright and shiny, in .32 S&W Long. Probably made in about 1974 or so.

    I have never owned revolvers, so I would not know what to look at to determine safety. Semi-autos HG, O/U, s/a & pump shotguns, and rifles, I feel comfortable tearing into and making my own determination.

    I suppose I could just load it up and let 'er rip. I would just feel more comfortable to have someone look at it and give me professional feedback before I do.
