Cole Fine Guns and Gunsmithing comes to mind. I cannot recommend them as I have no experience with them at all, I only know they are a recognized name in the industry. You might try going to the home page FAQ's where the very first topic is "need a gunsmith". You can actually search that thread individually by using the "Search This Thread" feature in the tool bar. Maybe you will get lucky.

Consider posting some pics of your gun and any questions you may have about it. Odds are good someone here will be able to help you out with it.

Terry, If you post some photos and include some that show the serial #, barrel flats and the water table you will likely learn more about your gun than you ever imagined. The body of knowledge of these folks is mind boggling.

Thanks for the advice. I took a bunch of pics last night, where would be the best place to post them, so that others can look at them. I am going to send in to get the history report also. My ser# is 20084 no letters. So from what I have been able to find out that it was made in 1880. Think it's a 0 grade with ejector.

Cole's is a very reputable outfit. They are specialists in Berettas.. My only experience was a Beretta which was fixed in 6 hours. Rich Cole also has the most amazing sleeve of tattoos you'll ever see

You’ll get some good advice soon. Could you take the barrels off and share picks of the action and barrels where the numbers, letters and other markings are?
