    Sorry to hear you missed one. I think you have learned that if you want it don't put it down and agree to pay what it takes. I have missed a bunch over the years. Now the good news is there's always another one that will catch your fancy down the road. Good luck.

    Best Baldy..

    This is pretty typical of older Colt DA guns. Its usually a simple fix, as its either the hand or trigger (or both) which are easily replaced by a home gunsmith. Parts are readily available from Numrich (Gun Parts Corp). Colt didn't case harden these parts as did Smith, so wear is pretty common.
    I had one old Colt New Service that I had as a kid, that I had to finish cylinder rotation by hand before firing.

    EEKKK! That one word "Home Gunsmith" often scares me! Being that I went to school for it, worked for a few large gunmakers, owned my a shop and have seen the aftermath of the "home gunsmith" it gives me the willys... I'd prefer the term "people of competent ability".

    I suppose its like most skilled trades, some people just are not as skilled as they think they are.

    Didn't mean to offend.........

    But I consider the simple replacement of parts as "home gunsmithing." Certainly most avid gunnies have on hand enough proper tools to replace parts without damage.

    And, in so doing, a gun is out of action only so long as it takes to locate a needed part and get it in and installed.

    Beats three to six months at the local shop, or $70.00 tacked on for shipping. in addition to the repair charges.

    I have no doubt you and many people here on these forums are skilled enough (I've read many of your post) and eager to play, so I mean no offense to anyone and I am not picking on any one person or social class, but the average person is usually alot more like Forest Gump when it comes to most repairs of anything technical or not, even if they don't want to admit it. Thats one reason so many tech support lines and hospital emergency rooms stay busy... (I wish I was joking). Human behavoir is if nothing else, amusing

    I say this with my wife spending many years working in an E.R. and seeing the dumb things people do because they are "skilled" and many years of people bringing their boo-boo's to me to fix, solve or repair.

    And if it takes 3-6 months at the local shop, that shop either needs more skilled help or a better business plan. Shipping is the curse of a lifetime warranty
