    Colt New Service Part

    Recently purchased a Colt New Service s/n 171xxx which makes the frame a 1917 product. However, the barrel shows a 1926 patent date. It is a .44 special (marked "NEW SERVICE .44" with a 5 1/4inch barrel. adjustable rear sight and gold bead front sight. I realize its a "parts gun" and I bought it as a shooter. Problem: a broken firing pin on the skeletonized hammer (see THE HANDGUN by Boothroyd, 1970, page 309 for photo for hammer). I have checked Numrich for a replacement but no luck. Suggestions/Comments will be appreciated. Thanks.

    Have you tried calling Colt and see if they will repair it for you? I just got an old Owlshead by Iver Johnson and I am going to make a wall hanger out of it. The difference in metal and powders for the ammo for some of these old guns puts them on shakey ground with me. Good luck.

    Thanks for the suggestion but Colt will not repair guns that old on the grounds they no longer can supply parts. There is a company that will make new "old parts" and I shall try them next. Colt did repair a New Frontier, .45 Colt, DOB about 1976/77 and charged me nothing for the repair. My only cost was shipping FedX to them. Basically a good deal since they returned it to me in a blue plastic Colt container. Return time about 2 weeks. NOT BAD!
