  1. Trying to revitalize my first saa clone. In 1990 I took an entire summers worth of mowing money and had my dad get me a single action. 

    I Was 15 and already had a 357 blackhawk but I wanted a colt inspired gun. 

    What I could afford was a emf new dakota.   I was never so proud as to pick it out of the box.  51/2" 45 colt, still my favorite combo. 

    I had 100 factory rounds and dies and reloaded using dads 45 acp round nose bullets. 

    I loved that gun and every week would fire 100 rounds and reload them before the next week. 

    Have not shot her in years. Moved on to more accurate clones and finally colts.  Pulled her out of the safe and wanted to get her going again. 

    I forgot it but apparently I put it away because of a broken trigger and bolt spring. Also have some buggery screws( I was a kid)  

    I know asm guns are not the best so I dont need that lecture. 

    This Is pure sentiment 

    Does anyone making copies now have screws that will match up in a asm new dakota

    Please dont tell me vti or numerich because they are out. 

    What about a trigger and bolt spring, any one better fit or so I just need to try

  2. For a number of years a good friend of mine ran a good old fashioned machine shop. he had all manual machines and made any number of pieces for machines, cars and guns for a price based on time per hour spent. Many people just mailed him a part or dimensions to duplicate. Although he sold his shop I showed him a colt firing pin and he told me it would be a 75 dollar item made out of hardened steel. 

    He said you need to find a shop like that and either proper dimensions or a good cow poke who would loan you one. 


    It's a thought
