OK I'll get this thread started....I decided to restore the gun. I had a near mint condition original alcoa aluminum grip frame to use and the pitting was only superficial, nothing I could not handle.
1st step was to figure out what parts I had and what parts I needed
I was able to trade a stainless new model base pin for a hammer strut, main spring along with the trigger spring and plunger.
The bag of screws was not complete, it was actually two sets of new model grip frame screws, since the I had two sets I was A-OK, I just ended up with two pivot lock screws (for a new model)
I needed a few more items, I found an old model ejector rod & spring on ebay
I also found these Ruger Old Army frame screws, they also fit the old model
Numrich Arms (Gun Parts Corp) supplied some other misc parts
