Colt \"357\" Problem

I have a like new "357" that was carried by my brother-in-law in Viet Nam. Fortunately he never had to use it because the firing pin strike is so close to the edge of the primer that frequent misfires are the result. Is this a fixable problem? One very reputable shop said that they were stumped as to a solution. Help!

Re: Colt \"357\" Problem

Obviously, something is out of adjustment.

This IS "fixable", and I can suggest either the Colt factory, OR Pittsburgh Handgun Headquarters, in Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh used to do Colt's factory warranty repair overflow work.
They do factory-level work, and have a good supply of parts.

My main PC is in for repair and I don't have their address and phone number, but if you do a search on the revolver forum for them, you should see the contact info.

The Colt factory is usually the fastest and cheapest, but Pittsburgh is good too.

Re: Colt \"357\" Problem

dfariswheel, thanks for responding to my problem. This is a very nice revolver and I would like to do some shooting with it. In fact, my first .357 Mag. was this model way back when they first came out. Should never have sold it! Thanks again.

Bob
