"the hammer just flops back and forth. Hammer spring?"

Hopefully that's all it is.

If the hammer is broken internally you might have a very difficult time finding another one.

If the barrel is roughly .32 caliber and it's centerfire, the chances are excellent that it's .32-40. That was one of the most popular of the Ballard calibers, surpassed, I believe, only by the .38-55.

We really need pictures.

And, my curiosity is killing me.

How much is a garage sale Ballard going for these days?
