I know a fellow who's got a blackpowder frame single-action army that seems to be in good mechanical condition (timing, etc.) but does not engage half-cock. Does anyone out there have a line on replacement parts that are true to this production period? I know that Colt often made minor changes within models (e.g., the knurling pattern on the hammers of the 1851 Navy), but I don't know if Colt made any changes in hammer design of the SAA (at least, before the major changes between 1896 and 1899?).

Any information would be appreciated.

There are a number of 'smiths out there who will weld up the half-cock notch for you. Ray Meiburn used to be the premier 'smith, but he went to that great Colt factory in the sky a few years ago. I wouldn't replace the entire hammer.
