I have a nickel plated Colt DA 38 with a 5'' barrel, patent Mar 5 1884 to Mar 5 95. It is a nice tight good looking gun, but the barrel is shot out. Part of it's life was as a circus stage prop. They probably shot blanks or shot thru it. It has been in the family 50-60 years.
Where could I purchase a nickel plated replacement barrel. I believe the proper ammo is 38 long colt, could anyone confirm the proper ammo?
Any help with the barrel would be greatly appreciated.
