    Alright guys and gals, here is the story.

    my FFL has found a source of Smith Model 67's that look brand new and almost like they have never been fired and for a fantastic price. As some of you know Linda had her 67 blow up on her many years ago and I'm looking to replace it for her.

    Now here is where I need a little help. The 67's have been modified by a police department to be DAO only revolvers and I want to know what I would have to do to return it back to a SA/DA revolver. I don't believe there was much smithing involved but again I'm not real familiar with wheel guns as I am with autos so I'm open to suggestions.

    I swapped out hammer on a 25-2 that somebody bobbed. It can be put back to SA/DA with parts swapping and time to understand how things work inside. Hardest thing I have with S&W is putting the side plate back on correctly.

    Some things are best left to a professional. I've completely broken down and put back together 2 of my revolvers and while successful, it was not easy. Then again I'm no gunsmith and have never been known for my patience.

    A smith shouldn't charge you very much for this, but if you do it yourself make sure you have a vice or a third hand.

    Scubie, they probably just bobbed the hammer. You can order a new hammer assembly and replace it.

    I like the .375" target hammer best.

    I have K-frame hammers and can convert it back or walk you through the process. Let me know.

    You need a new hammer and it might require some fitting. Cheap fix.

    It's a piece of cake to convert it back to DA/SA-all you need to do is fit a hammer and possibly the trigger if they got rid of the SA notch on it.

    Guys,

    Thanks for all the info. It looks like it was an armory queen and it is a -1, not a -4! It looks likes it has never been fired. I will be posting pics of it shortly, along with my new LadySmith 3919. Thanks Don!!
