you will need a Transitional N frame hammer, basically a pre war long action hammer with cut out for hammer block safety. I have several, feel free to PM me. The trigger shouldn't be as much of a problem, not sure if I have a spare or not.

Hey Walter. I believe your HD is a "transitional" and has the pre-war N frame hammer (long throw) but it is notched for the sliding hammer block. IMO, you could use a pre-war 1917 hammer and cut the hammer block notch yourself if you can't find an original one.


(Kris beat me to it) A period correct K or N frame trigger should work. Could be a Victory model's trigger would work.

You'll need a trigger K or N with the hand spring in the trigger. Your hand should have the two pins that mount it in the trigger.

And the post war sliding bar hammer block safety.

Kris beat me to it again. I have a couple new N 'trans' hammers and some new Victory triggers if anyone else needs a set.

What happened to your originals? were the refinished or did someone 'stone them to death'? :-)
