    :D I have a identical gun to which you show in this post. But I need a cylinder and cylinder pin to make it functional. Any ideas???

    These guns were made prior to 1880 and not many of them show up now adays. You can try Numrich/GPC - they don't list them, but they may have one stashed away somewhere.
    also try:
    www.jackfirstgun.com
    www.wisnersinc.com
    www.schludershots.com

    If these dealers in obsolete gun parts don't have the parts you need, then perhaps you will need to monitor the online gun auction sites for a parts gun. Could take a while though.

    My first post, so if I should start a new one let me know. Sound linke same topic maybe.
    I was given a revolver and have been trying to find out what exactly it is (caliber, year, etc.). I know it is a US Revolver, SN 22324, 7 shot, and I think top break means it opens to load the ammo, right? Its pretty rusty, and seems to be black to me. Wanted to find our whether it is worth cleaning or taking to a gun smith.
    Thanks for any info!

    Where did you take S.N. from, trigger guard or under the grip? The number under the left side grip is the one we need. It may be the same but then it may also have a letter code included such as the letter C then the number.
    I think it's a .38 cal. but if you don't know measure accross the cylinder bore for us.

    And welcome to The Firearms Forum Nicole!

    Welcome to the forum Nicole.

    Fuzebox, if it's a 7-shot it's a .22, and Nicole, if the number on frame under left grip has no letter prefix it was made in 1911 but if it has prefix of letter A, made in 1919.

    It can be cleaned some using 0000 steel wool and a little oil, but nothing any coarser should be used. And if mechanically correct, it should be OK to fire with standard velocity .22 ammo (no hi-speed stuff)

    And in case you didn't know, these were made by Iver Johnson for sale by mailorder houses.

    fuzebox and hrf,
    Only SN i found was under left grip. Bore measures about 5mm.
    Wow, hope I am only a little rusty when I am 91 :D
    Think I'll take it in and get it checked out before firing.
    Thanks for the info!
    Nicole

    Ah, I didn't even consider that. I only looked at the trigger guard in reference to frame but the cylinder is rather obvious isn't it.

    If no letter A serial no. prefix, it's 101

    While I'm at it ,is it possible to get a rough idea about the value of 1873 Remington 44-40
    octagonal barrel repeater- well used even has 3 notches on the wooden butt stock! I don't know if they are # of killed -buffalo-elk-deer-indians-lawmen ??

    A 5-round .32 with that serial no. has to be a small frame hammer model made in 1922.

    ?? - No such thing as a Remington Model 1873 repeating rifle; did you maybe mean a Winchester 1873?

    At any rate, post a new query with a better description and photos, instead of adding to this "U. S. Revolver" thread.

    Welcome to the forum cazador.

    Read the "sticky" at top of page:

    http://www.thefirearmsforum.com/showthread.php?t=90427

    What caliber is it?

    It apparently has a broken trigger spring.
