1887 Hammer replacement

Post by BossHoss » Sat Jun 06, 2020 2:43 pm

HI,

I just got my hands on a nice 1887 that was partially restored...I am in need of a genuine set of hammers for it. It seems the last owner or whoever worked on it , dremel tool (adjusted) a different set of hammers for it. Thankfully, he did not mess with the lock stud.

Any ideas of where to scrounge up a pair for an 1887 serial #21xxx .....it had a maple stock replacement, nice modern job, and close but (rigged) not right hammers..no engraving, but, strangley, Grade 5 awesome stunning barrels, all numbers matching...tight choke on the right (not normal), near open on left. Custom order, I believe. I will post pics later.

Garland Jackson, a member here, or Brad Bachelder, a gunsmith in Grand Rapids, Mi. Brad is gone now, but his family still carries on with the business.
