The Custom Revolver by Hamilton Bowen is a classic read for any revolver enthusiast.  Bowen breaks down so many of the custom touches that have made him famous in pistolsmith circle for years.

Perhaps the most surprising part of the book is the wonderful style in which it is written.  Uncommon for a pistolsmith to possess such a command of his pen as well as his file.

Until recently this book was unavailable to the general public because it was out of print.  When you did find them for sale you could expect to pay well over $100. Now you can buy the book for $9.99 and read it on your kindle or I-pad.  The e-version is a good version.  The pictures are great, and the formatting was done correctly.  This book is a bargain at  $9.99.  I guess some things in the digital age really are better.
