    I need a left hammer for my Colt 1878 but have exhausted all known sources - any ideas?

    I have heard that hammers from a reproduction coach gun will work but haven't been able to run that rumor to ground.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Try Dixie Gun Works. They have a pretty good inventory of hammers but you may have to match it up.
