My 460V S&W X-frame has had a Master Revolver Package action job and beveled charging holes with fixed overtravel stop on back of trigger done by the Performance Center at S&W.
A green-tube front sight install by the Performance Center. Bowen Classic Arms did all to my 460V that I described for my 500 S&W.

Cylinder and Slide bead-blasted the 460V also. I use Cylinder and Slide as my last stop because they take apart and measure every firearm to make sure it meets all specifications. Also, they offer a lifetime warranty on all revolvers and semi-auto firearms they do work on.

Cylinder and Slide set back the barrel on my 500 S&W because it had an out of specification overly large cylinder gap. They set the barrel back to close it to a standard .005 gap.

Last detail on both my X-frame revolvers is now complete. The Hillary Holes are no more and I am very happy. Original Precision came through with an excellent aftermarket solution to a problem.

This is my model 329PD with dual trapezoidal porting and polished hammer and trigger by Mag-Na-Port. The cylinder is a S&W stainless steel fluted model I bought from Brownells and I took off the titanium one it came with. Bowen Classic Arms black powder chamfered the front of the stainless cylinder and measured the chamber throats for shooting jacketed bullets. Also beveled the charging holes for easier loading.
The grip is a 500 S&W X-frame Hogue rubber grip with a sorbethane padded area where the hand grips at the back.

I also asked Mag-Na-Port to EDM aka electrical discharge machine metal from the rear V-blade on the S&W adjustable sight with a vertical line. They also put white in the line and it helps me line-up the red-tube front sight so much easier. I bought a Mepro tritium green front sight to add a more visible sight picture and will get it put on soon. It was on clearance on OpticsPlanet.com.

My 329PD is off to Cylinder and Slide so it will be done soon. I will have an action job and fixed-overtravel trigger stop installed, as well as a ball/detent crane-lock installed to keep the cylinder in line. And an aftermarket Mepro big dot green tritium front sight installed. Should be right for my CCW with Honey Badger 44 Special jacketed bullets loaded up.
