extra trigger, hammer & trigger guard??

about a year ago i got a great deal on a blued ruger service six, i still have it and carry it daily as my ccw. i bought when funds allowed extra parts, i now have every extra part for the gun except the trigger and hammer. do these ever fail under normal use? reason i'm asking a friend of mine is parting out his gun and he will let me have them both for $30 which includes the trigger guard with pawl and transfer bar. will the trigger guard just fit on mine without gunsmithing? his blued guard is almost 100% good bluing and mine is about 50%. thanks for any help

it sounds like a deal. if he is a friend of yours why don't you meet him somewhere and try it on. the parts come in handy if you mess up a trigger job or want to experiment with things like skelitalizing the hammer

The trigger guard most likely will not be a 100% seamless fit,you'll never have a trigger guard "fail" anyway..... plus youre not likely to ever need a spare hammer or trigger unless you wanted to bob one of the hammers.

I've done my share of tinkering, some of which worked out great some failed horribly at a great loss of time and money......so now I feel if a gun looks good and works fine as is when I find it, I don't want to mess with it.

thanks, my gun doesn't look the best but mechanically it is as good as new. it was carried alot before i got it in leather holster and has bluing wear. but it shoots the best of any handgun i have ever owned. i had the cylinder duracoated but the frame is still about 80-90% good with most bluing gone from the bottom of the trigger guard.

The price is reasonable. As a comparison you can look up used parts on Numrich ( Gunparts.com ). If you never mess with the action the originals ought to last. However, having had a gunsmith botch a trigger job in the past I usually get a spare hammer and trigger. As noted the trigger guard might need some fitting and blueing touch up after fitting. I don't know that one would need the trigger guard but some of the parts contained therein could be useful.

I'd spend the money on refinishing the old one. You have something that works well, I wouldn't mess with it
