    1902 Philippine DA an “Un-bobbed” Hammer.

    Most older Colt ‘smiths would rather make than buy a replacement.

    There’s a couple reasons: one, the gun may not deserve a salvaged hammer from a bin somewhere and should be reserved for a gun in better condition. And secondly, even at an hourly shop rate of $80 it’s more profitable for the ‘smith to make the money in a quick weld and some file and polish work.

    A broken Italian SA hammer was utilized to extend where it was previously bobbed.
    The spur flare isn’t exactly like an original, but it looks good and feels good. The spur has some good texture for thumb traction.
    This is going on a long-ago, re-nickeled 1902 so the flats are polished to 1500.

    Here’s a before and after.
