Default Putting back on face

What is the proper/best way to put a gun back on face? Is it replacing the pin or having it welded up and worked back down. Pro's and cons.What would be the cost?
The gun is a GH O frame 16, Damascus 77340.

Unless you are a professional double gunsmith, the proper way to put it back on face is to pack it up and send it to Kirk Merrington, Del Grego or Bachelder's.

There are too many variables for an amateur to deal with...

The roll pin is what needs to be replaced. I think DelGrego has a drawer full of them. Being a cheapskate, I snip off a piece of brass shim with scissors, wrap it around a pencil and fit it to the roll joint.

Check with Brian Dudley. He has oversized replacement roll pins.

I can second that. Recently used one that worked fabulously.
