    M971 Stainless 6" broken HAMMER

    No, I do not mean a hammer pin. I was shooting a friends 971 because he wanted to sell it, when I guess I shot a bad round. The gun made louder than normal pop and broke the hammer off at the narrowest point. Looked at the brass that was in the cylinder and there was a hole in the primer. My buddy swears that it was a factory load. We are having a lot of trouble finding a replacement hammer.

    Any suggestions?

    Duct tape is like 'The Force'. It has a light side and a dark side, and it binds the universe together.

    You know the other funny thing about duct tape? There are hundreds of uses, but it's not used for ducts. Go figure...

    Tried Taurus, Rossi, Braztech, egunparts, gunparts...nobody can help me. Taurus sayed that if it was made in Brazil (Interarms) that I probably will not be able to get the replacement hammer.

    Re: M971 Stainless 6" broken HAMMER

    If that's the case you will probably have to find a gunsmith who can repair the hammer, or fabricate a new hammer. I'm sure some other people will have suggestions, but I would start by talking to your local gunsmith to see if he/she is able to repair it. If he/she isn't able to do the repair or make the new part they will probably know someone who can.

    Can you post pictures of the problem? Somebody might have a better suggestion if they can visualize the hammer.

    Another option is to start looking for a parts gun. I don't know how viable this option is, but it's something to consider.

    You might want to take the broken parts to a good machine shop and see if they can mill you a new hammer or weld the old one.
