    Wanted , revolver lock assembly

    I have a winter project in mind ... so here's what I need .

    A lock assembly from a revolver , from hammer to the trigger .

    I don't need anything specific , but I do have a preference or three.

    First thing is I don't need anything of real high quality... worn out junk that is complete is fine ... my definition of complete is the need to be able to cock and trip a hammer . I don't need to be able to index or a lock a cylinder . But the more that's there the better

    Something from a medium to large frame revolver would suit my needs better .

    Single action is the preferance of course , but I can work with double action just fine . Transfer bars are fine . But no rebounding hammers .

    So like i mentioned this is a winter project so I am in no hurry , just figured I'd ask here first before giving someone on gunbroker my money for a parts gun .

    How will you mount the hammer, trigger, sear, spring?
    Or do you need the frame for spacing?
    Maybe a Ruger or S&W or other with top strap blown away?

    If the price was right and it was a " destroyed " or antique frame that didn't have to threw an ffl that would be fine with me .
    It would initially save me some effort .
    But a frame isn't needed , I plan on starting from scratch , I work much faster with visual aids rather then pencil and paper .
    And having parts that work from the start that I can cut ,weld ,grind on before making them myself would be a huge step forward

    Consider a cheap or used BP revolver like a Colt 1851 or 1860 copy.
    No FFL needed.
    Take off the barrel assembly and you have what you requested.

    I have a Remington replica free for the asking. Along these lines I have an in-line BP rifle a gentleman built in the 1960's that uses a revolver hammer and trigger for the action. He designed it all and built it.
    It was my first rifle and one that I will put in my casket.

    Remington is free, PM for details.
