James - I have not yet called them, but will report back if I decide to send my hammer off for repair.

As for the stocks of the Model 3, there are two basic styles out there. The early Model 3 Americans had square butt wood, but a shape change was made for the Schofield revolver. The round butt versions had a few different styles, but were all the same frame size. The Russian guns had smooth walnut stocks, while the New Model 3 SA revolvers had both checkered wood and hard rubber stocks. Lastly, the 44 DAs had predominately hard rubber stocks, but later production guns show up with walnut service stocks and some post-1910 guns have gold medallion walnut stocks. All round butt wood and rubber stocks had the sharp front corner.
