I have a customer that has a Herter single six 44 mag. It is missing all the shell ejector components. Can you help me with this problem? Thanks.

Since the revolver was made in Europe and has been long discontinued, I would measure the distance from the face of the cylinder frame to the threaded hole/boss that the EJH attached to, and either start measuring the housings of other currently manufactured SA revolvers and order the parts; or speak to one of the aftermarket EJH makers, like Milt at Qualite.

Herter's did not actually manufacture the .401 Powermag revolver; rather they contracted with J. P. Sauer & Sohn to make it for them (using the same basic pattern as the adjustable sight Hawes Chief Marshall).

Another good article on the Herters revolvers here: http://www.singleactions.com/HERTERPOWERMAGS.pdf

I think in your shoes I'd try to locate and eject assembly for a Hawes Western Marshall (or any of the numerous centerfire 'Marshall' revolvers they imported) and see if that won't work.
