Thread: Need bolt for Great Western Colt clone

  1. #1

    Default Need bolt for Great Western Colt clone

    My neighbor brought over his dad's old Great Western Arms Co. single action because the cylinder wouldn't turn. The bolt is broken so that it doesn't lower and so the cylinder stays locked. So, I need to find a bolt for this 70s piece. I have taken reasonable shots of the revolver and the bolt. Serial number is GW9436. Any help would be appreciated.

    Might have one laying around. I'll get back to you in a couple days.

    Most of the old SAA copies are almost exact mechanical copies - they makers didn't pay the cost to change anything.

    Try any of the parts houses for a full size Colt SAA bolt- it should work fine with minor fitting.

    A rather bizaare statement. So, does this mean if you aren't a city dweller you're not patriotic and a free-loader? Snooty and liberal sounding, IMHO.

    Being the guns were made using mostly Colt parts I'm sure Colt parts would work.
