I have a lovely old Dougall 16 bore double rifle with a badly damaged hammer retaining screw on one of the Stanton locks. This screw is interchangeable with the hammer screw on a Grant double that uses Brazier locks - so the threads are identical.
Anyone know of a source that might be able to provide a replacement? I've tried a couple of English websites without success. Failing that, a good 'smith who can weld up the damaged screw slot, cut a new one, and engrave it to match?
Forget the “weld it up and cut a new slot option”, I’ve gone that route and I’ll say it’s just easier, simpler & faster to have a new pin made. If you’re in Canada, there’s a number of gunsmiths that are fully capable that can make a new pin, have it engraved and age-matched. Or you can send it here and have one made. Del Whitman in Michigan will make you a new pin, engrave it and age it and it’ll never leave his shop. I’ve had all sorts of new pins made and I don’t think I’ve ever paid more that $150 for a pin, to include engraving & finishing.
