Hi
Anybody knows if a Uberti hammer will fit an original S&W?
Or if it's oversized so that it could be fitted?

Kindly regards
RB
If your gun can reach it and you can see it, you can hit it. If you practice. I don't :-)

Acording to David Chicoine in his book S&W Sixguns of the Old West very few parts from the Italian replicas,ASM/Cimmaron and Uberti and even the S&W made Schofield, will interchange with the originals other than a few springs and smaller parts. They have been re-engineered by these companies and are of different dimentions and screw threads. If it is a question of broken hammer notches etc. a good gunsmith could reweld and recut them on your hammer.

You could try to obtain a hammer from Jack First in the USA www.jackfirstgun.com/ or ask your question on the S&W website  http://smith-wessonfourum.com  Go to the S&W Antique forum. Many US companies will not even export antique parts but I have used the services of registered gunsmiths Peter Dyson over here in the UK to obtain original parts for Winchesters.

Good luck,

Gwyn

Thanks for the reply Gwyn.
I've already got a post on the S&W forum, but your answer is the only good one I've got. I was thinking about buying that book just because I knew there where som information about interchangeble parts, but now you saved me some time and money. The problem is that a hobby mechanic has messed up the hammer really bad, rest of the revolver is fine. Maybe I will have to make one from scratch (got alot of elbow grease :-) ).

Thanks again
