Default Broken firing pin on old colt.

So recently I was plinkin with this old .22 Colt my grandpa gave me. It's always had a problem with the cylinder for as long as I can remember. The cylinder would just stop turning when it was being loaded and I could never figure out why. Well I had a day off and hours to tinker, so I busted out the punches and screwdrivers and had at it for a while. Turns out it was a broken firing pin! It would stick out into the cylinder at times and cause it to stop turning and oddly it would still operate. Well the point of my little short story here is my local smith couldn't help me find the part, the guy said they dont make colt revolver replacement parts and Colt never answers the phone. So if anyone knows somewhere online or a good number to reach someone who can get me the part that would be great. For those who are interested the pistol is an old 1959 Colt Frontier Scout, my pride an joy thanks forum.

Any smith worth his salt should be able to make a firing pin if you still have the old parts that can be used as an example.

That is a good way to find out if he is a smith or parts swapper.

Your local guy is either lazy or blatantly lying to you.

I had the same problem with my New Frontier.

Numrich Gun Parts Corporation will have the part. Find someone who is deserving of your money.

willfully had given you one of the best sources in the country. You can check out the model you have and even though they might not show the part available on the website just call them. I am saying they do have it!
Good Luck and get her fixed!!!!

I appreciate it fellas, just ordered it from Numrich, bit my local gunsmith is kind of a turd. He basically just told me they don't make em anymore and sent me on my way. The reason why I do most of my firearms repairs. But thanks for Numrich, was definitely blown away by their extensive and detailed inventory.
