Colt Started 1966 with serial number 21401 and ended the year on the K Model Scout with Serial number 25155K. Good luck on finding a cylinder, you might try Numrich.

Gun Parts does sell REPLACEMENT (Non-Colt) cylinders..... BUT, these require fitting by a qualified pistolsmith.
They DO NOT "drop in".

Among other checks and adjustments to a new cylinder is head space, end shake, barrel/cylinder gap, barrel/chamber alignment, lock up, and timing.
