Fred, there is no source that stocks replacement old model parts but you can often find them for sale (used take off parts) online at sites like GunBroker. Another member posted he recently bought a set of old model parts from a factory conversion for around $110 and I believe he found them at GunBroker. The old model design was retired in 1973 - 44 years ago - so the old parts have become pretty scarce. You won't find much if anything from normal sources such as Brownell's or Midway or Numerich. You have be a parts hound and sleuth them out.

One exception I know of - Dave Clements makes and sells a beautiful old model Bisley style hammer that's a drop in for an old model Blackhawk. But be aware it's around $260 and he doesn't always have them available for sale. And that's just a hammer and not the rest of the OM parts.

You can post a "Want To Buy" ad here in the Classifieds but you need 10 posts before you gain the privileges of posting in the Classifieds and using the Private Message feature.

Good luck and happy hunting.
