Default Broken Hammer Stud

I Have a "Baby Chief", 1954 vintage, that the hammer stud broken off flush with the frame. Gun Parts Corp is sold out, so I am not even sure what the complete stud looks like. Is it just a pin or is there a flange or collar on it? There are no spanner holes around the pin so I don't think it is a screw in type. Can it be drilled out and a new pin fitted????

I sure would appreciate any suggestions or information if anyone has had experience with such a problem.

Thanks

Here are some pictures of the broken stud.

Now that I've studied the pictures, it looks like the stud has a collar, based on the machining marks on the inside of the frame.....opinions???

Without actually seeing it it's not certain, but it looks like the enlarged area is a boss machined onto the frame to act as a spacer for the hammer.

It looks like the actual hammer pin is just a straight pin. To be sure compare the diameter of the pin to the exposed portion on the outside of the frame.
If that's smaller then the broken part, the pin has a reduced section that fits into the frame hole.

Whether this is a pressed in pin or an induction brazed pin is unknown.

Smart move.......Back to S&W for a correct replacement.

If they can't/won't repair it, see Frank Glenn in Arizona for a factory level repair.

Unfortunately it is a five screw from 1954, S&W will not work on it.
Thanks for the info on Frank Glenn.
