Default extra trigger, hammer & trigger guard??

about a year ago i got a great deal on a blued ruger service six, i still have it and carry it daily as my ccw. i bought when funds allowed extra parts, i now have every extra part for the gun except the trigger and hammer. do these ever fail under normal use? reason i'm asking a friend of mine is parting out his gun and he will let me have them both for $30 which includes the trigger guard with pawl and transfer bar. will the trigger guard just fit on mine without gunsmithing? his blued guard is almost 100% good bluing and mine is about 50%. thanks for any help

Funny thing is that an item is ALWAYS cheaper as a whole than if bought in parts. If you have a need for every single replacement part for something, you're better off buying another of that item.
I don't see what the problem is. Everybody is being nice, and getting along, and I, for one, am learning stuff. So, if you don't like the discussion, don't look at the thread. Or, simply cut to the chase, and close it.
Is there an age limit for a thread, after which we kill it?

They can wear out if you run maybe a couple hundred thousand rounds. Its not something i would be concerned on a ruger. Ruger will fix it if it breaks for free and if its not fixable they tend to give you a new gun.

I dont keep spare parts on my ruger new vaqueros and i use them for cowboy shooting so they see a lot of rounds and get used hard. I also run a uberti 1873 i keep spares for and a cz hammer coach i have a spare gun for. Im not concerned about my ruger revolvers breaking.

Most revolver parts require hand fiting. I wouldnt use parts from one revolver in another. Only fit new parts in revolvers never used ones. The tolerances from fitting are likely to be different and can cause a very unsafe condition which can lead to a negligent discharge lodging a projectile in an unintended person animal or object.

Its just not worth the risk of using parts from one gun in another when it comes to fire control mechanisms.
