That is so.
2nd and 3rd generation Colt percussion revolvers use American thread screws that will also fit the Colt original models; whereas, the Italians, including Pietta use metric screws. Screws for the two generations of Colt percussions can be ordered from Dixie Gun Works and Lodgewood.

Lodgewood stocks a few inch pattern parts

Mine is pressed in, but it is a CVA reproduction.

My Armi San Marco is also like that, thats modeled after the original that had the front sight blade pressed into place with an interference fit.

The Savage Model 1917 pistol shares two of the three unique features of the Savage Models 1907 and 1915. What feature does the Savage Models 1907 and 1915 have that the Savage Model 1917 doesn't have?
The Savage Models 1907, 1915 and 1917 share two unique features. The first unique feature is that, what appears to be a "hammer" isn't a hammer but a cocking lever. All three Savage pistols are fired by an inline striker, or firing pin, that is connected to the hammer which is used to retract the firing pin until the sear engages the firing pin, not the hammer. When the pistol is fired, the hammer will travel with the firing pin, but it is the sear releasing the firing pin, not the hammer, that makes the Savage Model 1907, 1915 and 1917 striker fired pistols. The second unique feature to all three Savage pistols is, although the pistols are locked breach, it is the barrel that rotates, or twists, to unlock the barrel from the slide during recoil. A lug on the barrel engages a slot in the slide which, during initial recoil, frees the barrel from the slide, allowing the action to cycle. The third unique feature only to the Savage Models 1907 and 1915, not the 1917, is the lack of grip screws for disassembly, only the Savage Model 1917 requiring a screwdriver to remove the grips.
