Gun Parts Sources

Later on this summer I'll be taking on a couple of projects repairing and restoring a couple of firearms that have been in my family for a while. Besides Numrich Gun Parts, what other sources are there for getting replacement parts? The guns in question are a single shot .22 rifle and an old percussion cap revolver that my dad is giving me. Except for a bad extractor on the .22 rifle, that's all the info I have until I get the guns.

Thanks...Vince

Depending on age of the firearms, you may be faced with learning some old fashioned gunsmithing. You may need to make some parts yourself. I was faced with this about 30 years ago, trying to repair a double barreled shotgun with a broken firing pin.

Ended up making one on a lathe, using the good one as a pattern. You'd be amazed at what you'll learn during the process. Access to some machine tools will be a plus as it was for me.

Good for parts for newer guns, not so good for older and cheaper gun parts.

Numrich is best for all the "oddballs" or pre-WWII firearms.

my dad lives out in amboy and does a bit of gunsmithing on lots of OLD guns..

He has a pretty decent collection of pre 1900 firearms and quite a few spanning the 1900's
He works on all of them.. swapping barrels, calibers, machining parts.. who knows..

If you don't find what your looking for down there with a local shop I'll put you in contact with him.
