Web Blast Extra: Peacemaker Specialists
Perfecting Perfection

Eddie Janis of Peacemaker Specialist, has long been known for producing exquisitely tuned Colt Single Actions as well as beautiful restorations. Eddie specializes in Peacemakers to the extent he will not work on any other revolvers — no Rugers, no Great Westerns, no USFAs and no replicas. Eddie is a purist in the strictest sense of the word. Eddie’s sixgunning mission is to take over where the manufacturer of Colt Single Actions leaves off, and proceed to perfection. Or to take an early Colt Single Action and complete it or return it to perfection.

Pre-War Colts in their original form are beautiful sixguns, however many were used hard over the course of their shooting life. Again this is where Peacemaker Specialists comes onstage. The early 2nd Generation Colts were also fine sixguns, but lacked perfection, often being found with oversize chambers, and as machinery began to wear the later sixguns slipped in quality. Many 3rd Generation revolvers also need help, the kind of help Eddie Janis can supply.
