Antique Gun List
Yeah, I know: It's a gun auction site - but if you scroll down the left panel you'll see that they also offer original parts "pulled" from bricks, so yeah they offer some hard to get parts. So, if that's what you need, here it be.

If they don't have it, they know where they can get it!

Rear sight for 1893 Marlin SRC lever action carbine.
Bolt parts, trigger guard, and barrel band for 1871 Mauser 11mm carbine.
Stock for Lefever S x S side plate 12 guage.

"Dixie Gun Works"

When I worked in the retail firearm industry we would send folks to them for obsolete parts, and even if they didn't have it, they would make the part.

Old gun parts

I've exhausted the list provided where can I go next? I need a cylinder lock with spring and a hammer pivot stud for an early Smith & Wesson .32 cal. top-break 5 shot revolver.

Many older fire arms and/or named manufacturers have one or more dedicated collector clubs/forums.

Often, those members have some hard to find parts they will sell, same as on this forum. This works better for me than "the usual places" where I usually see "out of stock" for every part I'm looking for.

Interarms in Houston also has a lot of old military parts, as well as for civilian Hi-Standard, Universal, and the more popular brand civilian & military arms. He's bought out the parts inventories of several out of business brands.

Oddly, just yesterday I was looking for HS derringer parts and found that site. It's confusing at first because several old names are suddenly on the same page!

Don't get discouraged if you call Lee's Gun Parts and get no answer. He is only open on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. He packs on Friday's and attends gun shows on the weekend. Could someone modify his listing as such. powdr

I make my own parts by hand. Last was a broken link in an original WW lever gun.
I also have a book with old parts and dimensions. I make my own springs too. I make longer transfer bars for my Ruger types to get a lighter trigger.
Screws can be a problem with odd TPI. A hunk of tool steel, files and hacksaw will fix anything. I make my own cherries for bullet molds. Near $300 to buy one. I buy 3' oil hardening rod for $5, need 3" per cherry. I can harden without a warp, then temper.
A true smith can make anything. I was 12 when I made my own sinker and jig molds.
Don't fool with air hardening steel or titanium. I made arrow rests from titanium and as you thread it gets harder. Stuff gets harder with any heat.
I can make anything, had a double shotgun missing the forearm and metal. Made the metal and wood to fit. Could not find parts. Gun Parts only has parts from buying old guns and a few new productions. When they are gone you are out of luck. Get metal and make it.
Many of you know and Jack is a great smith but I bet I have made more parts by hand. I have made mainsprings and frizzen springs for flint locks by hand that have never failed.
