Crack shot 26 barrels. Most are in poor shape borewise. I picked up an old barrel from a pile of about 200. Icut the reciever end off with a hacksaw, Spent 2 days filing a channel for the extractor and a dovetail for mounting hole for mounting to the reciever. and making an extractor. With the right equipment I would estimate about 1-2 hours work. I paid $10 for the barrell I started with. When I got done the barrel had a 2 degree cant but does work. alot of hand work.

+1 on these, and extractors.

Also, CZ52 firing pins that are properly heat treated.

A lot of the parts everyone is asking for, are cheap parts and would not be $$ wise to produce.
Like the firing pins, I'm sure you wouldn't want to pay $50 to $80 for one.
By the time you figure in cost of material, machine set-up, cost of running the tooling, heat treat cost, packaging and shipping, and a big jump in insurance cost when they find out that you are making gun parts because of liability.
That is about how much it would cost to make a small run of them, and making a large run of them would not sell.
If you need a small part to replace a broken one try some of the smaller machine shops or one in a small town. You may have to spend a lot more than you want to but you will have your gun working again.

Default A bit more ambitious...

There are no barrels available for the old style 'pinned' barrel S&W model 19 revolvers. A cracked barrel makes the revolver completely unusable.

I'm not sure how to market them, but I know there are some folks who would be delighted to see replacements.

You can buy spare extractors, but the FP's and trigger group parts are restricted. The only aftermarket FP is junk and breaks within 500 rnds.

If you could re design and make a good Mini fP, you would sell them like crazy.
Here's why, first, they break a lot, second, if you have modified your rifle in any way, Ruger will replace the FP, but takes out and keeps all your mods replacing them with their new junk parts.
No one wants to send their Minis to Ruger to get a new FP, but they have no choice.
The new model improved Minis are selling very well, but still break FP's and everyone I know would buy 2 or 3 spares if they could get a new pin. People will pay a decent amount for a Mini FP as long as it does not break.

If you ever want to make a new FP, PM me, I can give you a lot of info on the Mini's.
