I've seen a video Of a mill that drills Square holes
It would be so cool to index the tumbler axle to a mill that cut square holes, and then remove just enough material to release the Hammer from the shaft But that may be too high-tech for this application.

Skim cut it with a mill and place the largest punch that will fit in the blind hole, support the hammer and try to crack any weld that bridges the gap. No way to tell if it will work until you try.

I think the hammer will come off if you mill the surface weld and perhaps use an end mill to bore the hammer screw hole a little. Then clean up the shaft, drill and tap a new screw hole, make a new hammer screw and slightly refinish all the metal as needed. Great to turn a hundred dollar repair into a full days work with man and machine.

The grade four needs other work. Barrels are pitted but maybe not hopeless. They will need to be honed to clean up. Wood has two issues, one minor and one fairly major. If farmed out the hammer repair and wood repairs combined might be more than the gun cost. But I don’t see very many grade fours and saving this one might be worth it.

You guys talking about milling - you'd have to set up the whole receiver in the jaws of he vise - at least I think you would. The locks on a hammer gun are usually held in the stock with a screw that goes from the left lock to the right lock and head of the screw is located under the left hammer - the one buggered up. Maybe you could just clamp up the end of the receiver - just some thoughts. I'd just carefully grind a bit off hopping not too much grinding is needed.

Fixtures my good man. I would clamp the lock to a piece stock and put the stock in the vise.
