I've got the lockworks down pat on S&W revolvers. The hardest part is the hand spring, and I use a tension wire screwed to my workbench to get that spring set in properly. That's a re-assembly move where you definitely need three hands.
I've polished the rebound slides on an Arkie stone and the whole bit. Can't say I'm an expert, but I definitely have the skill level required to detail strip the lockworks, remove the lock and put everything back properly. Including replacing the lock if necessary at some point.
There's a member over at the S&W forum that uses a lathe to mill out a nice tight plug, stainless or blue, and it affixes with a tiny clip on the inside so it can be removed and the lock replaced.
Not too much Bubba involved if done properly. No worries, no lock, no Hillary Hole.
