Red face S&W dbl action 38 cal 2nd model 1880-1884

I was given this old 5 shot revolver S/N 13507, in order to put it in use I need a good hammer. The firing pin on my old hammer is gone.Where can I find a hammer? Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the Forum. It might be easier to have someone weld a new firing pin to your old hammer. Even though there were over 100,000 made, you do not often run across this particular model. There are a few places to search, but many have exhausted their inventory of these old revolvers. gunpartscorp.com has a newer model hammer for a 38 DA, but I doubt if it would work. Keep checking ebay, call Jack First and search the gun auction sites parts listings.

Check with this guy. He has a lot of old parts and may have a hammer.

If someone can post a photo next to a ruler I will check my hammers for one.
