Two weeks ago I stopped in a local pawn shop and found this beauty:
Its a Hy Hunter Western Six Shooter, made in Western Germany ca. 1960s or so, and imported by Hy Hunter. Its a .357 Magnum. Didn't like the plastic "stag" grips and alloy trigger guard and backstrap. I had a trigger guard from a Colt 1851 Navy, not sure the manufacturer, but tried it on my gun:
The backstrap shown is from a Colt SAA, trial fitted to my gun. The mainspring screw from the Hy Hunter didn't fit my trigger guard. So, I ordered a Uberti replacement screw and Hy Hunter brass backstrap from Numrich (Gun Parts, Inc.). When they arrived the Uberti screw didn't quite fit my trigger guard. I took the screw to my local hardware store and found it to be a 10-24 NC thread. I bought a 10-24 tap and tapped the hole in the trigger guard for that size.
Here, all parts fitted to the gun:
Obviously some fitting and polishing remain, as well as new grips. But all parts fit, and everything works.
