WTB: Right Side Hammer for an 1882 double

Post by amos » Wed Aug 15, 2012 3:30 pm

I traded for a nice 1882 remington hanmmered double that had the barrels cut, to save this old warhorse for more years of shooting enjoyment. The cut was necessary due to a bulge in the barrel. On further inspection I discovered the right hammer was incorrect as was the hammer screw.
I have since made an eyeopening discovery, while looking for the right side hammer. They (1882 hammers) are extremely difficult to find and hard to find one for sale.
If you can help me get this fine old shotgun back into action, I would be grateful to get my '82 out of the closet and back in action.
Help a poor ole TEXAN get his shotgun back into action.
It was/is my understanding "The Remington Society" was the answer to my needs!

Thanks ahead for any help or information.

I have just purchased '89 & '82 parts which are still in the mail. I can't tell from the pics whether the right hammer is correct or its' condition. Let you know when I can examine them.

Sorry to report that the right hammer is not a '82 and I'm not completely sure the left one is correct either.

Good luck
