I have a chance to buy an Army Special with 6 in barrell very good finish, except it is badly out of time, I have to nudge the cylinder to get it to lock up after I pull the hammer back. Is it a very easy fix to replace the hand?
Hi, Kennedy! And welcome. I know there's LOTS of guys on these pages that are much more knowledgeable about Colt repairs than I. BUT, ... I was always TOLD by range officers and PD armorers NOT to EVER mess with ANYTHING inside a Colt. I fix my own Lionel trains with some nimbleness ... and I can untangle my wife's garden hose without hurting myself. And I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express, once, too ... but work in a Colt? "Hey, hey, hey ... that's not the way!" Why, sakes alive, it's taken me since 1971 to learn how to reload! Sorry, just fooling around ... but, NO. I do NOT do repairs on Colt revolvers. The .45? No problem. (I CAN reload those.)
