Re: LC Smith Woes - simple parts needed
Bill, in nearly 20 years of shooting Smiths regularly, I have broken several hammers, as well as firing pins. I have broken hammers on hammer guns as well as hammerless. Same for firing pins. This seems like a fairly common problem, enough so that there is a cottage industry for the firing pins. I have purchased hammers from Numrich, presumably off of parts guns (rather than newly manufactured). I have noticed that the nose of the hammers becomes dimpled by the rear of the firing pin. This seems to indicate inferior material to me. Any other shooters notice this dimpling?
