Looks like ya done good, saving a SAA is always rewarding.
The ejector housing I located is the 3rd Generation. Fit was perfect as received, slipped into position at the frame and screw stud, works perfectly. So, while not completely correct for a 2nd Generation SAA, I find it to be completely acceptable for this application.Bravo and a very fine rescue! I too have swapped 2nd and 3rd gen cylinders w/o changing the hand several times and no issues or fitting the hand at all.
Did you get a 2nd or 3rd gen ejector housing? The 1st and 2nd gens compensate (more metal between hole and barrel at the front end) for the barrel taper and is parallel to the barrel, but the 3rd does not.
I'm with Weagle on this one....what the heck was the previous owner thinking?Good job.
One has to wonder what in the world the old owner was thinking by butchering that gun.
