Ruger No. 3 - looking for a breech block arm

Hello everyone,
I'm trying to help out my father who is assembling one of his old guns and missing a part. The gun is a mid-1970s Ruger No. 3. He recently got the gun back from a guy and it's missing the breech block arm.

I don't know a lot about the gun but can find out if details are needed. If anyone can help me do something nice for my Dad, I'd really appreciate it. He's a great guy and having this gun back together would make him happy.

Ruger won't sell the part so if I can't source one, I might see if they could provide any other options.
Thanks,
Scott

Google Lee's Gunparts, there down in your area, and I have got things from them that I could not find anywhere else. The web site has their address and phone number, they don't do internet sales. Good luck, #3's are great rifles.

Try Jack First gun parts, as well as Numerich Gun Parts, and also Dick Williams, as they all generally carry parts for discontinued guns that are popular. I know Jack First manufactures new parts for popular guns such as the Ruger No.3. You can find them all on the internet. If your not in any big hurry you can also check with Bob's Guns out of Arkansas, but he is slower than molasses in January in sending the part if he even has it. If you need the phone numbers of any of these just respond to this post and I'll provide them.

I found contact info for Lee's gun parts, Jack First, Bobs Guns and Dick Williams. I will give each of them a call and see if I can source this part. I'd previously tried Numerich and they couldn't help me.

Thanks for the information.
I appreciate your help.
Regards,
Scott
