Look at that thin web on the hammer. It ...MIGHT... be just fine, but I wouldn't chance it.

If you are worried, go to ebay.com and look for roof-top-view for replacement parts for the dan wesson.

I've had 4 DW's, still have two of them, and have yet to see a broken one. By the looks of that one, it's overdue for a good cleaning and lube.

DW's came with a yellow plastic disc that sits on the back of the cylinder for dry firing.

George, I had no idea either. Ran into a factory sales rep back in the early 1980's and ask him if that's what it for. I still have two of them, one with my safe queen .357 Pistol Pack, and the one that came with my 715VH, the only one I bought new.

Two or three of the Ruger revolvers that I have came with those disks. I usually just pulled them out and threw them away.

S&W owners can flame away, but the DW is a stronger revolver, and locks both front and rear. It can also eat a steady diet of Ruger Blackhawk loads, don't try that in your S&W!
