Old Army Parts

Ruger discontinued these revolvers almost 10 years ago and parts are getting scarce. Does anyone know of a gun shop that carries OEM or aftermarket stainless steel triggers? Ruger advises the triggers from other SA revolvers are not interchangeable.

When will those buggers ever realize that the Old Army had a consistant and ever present market albeit a possible light one. If they were making them now, each and everyone of them coming off the assemblyline at Ruger would be sold and probably for whatever Ruger chose to price them at. Another item that Ruger could clean up on is to offer a "sold seperately" conversion cylinder in 45LC or maybe 45 Schoenfeld (SP probably wrong on that one?). Every single one that was made would be sold without any possible worries. Shoot they could go into just the conversion cylinder business and make a killing just on the numbers of existing Old Armies that are out there already. Smithy.

As we know Bill is gone.
The kids sold the company to an investment group.
The same for TC and Colt.
A good gunsmith can make a trigger for your Old Army or adjust one from a Blackhawk.
I agree, if Ruger gets their head out of their xxx and re-issues the Old Army they will not keep up with demand.

They make conversion cylinders for the ROA, just not made by Ruger. They are set up for 45 colt, or Schofield.

I run them in mine and they work very well. Most of the time they are drop in and no fitting. Each chamber has an individual firing pin.
