Finally got into the shop to fix my Geroco .357

This is the revolver I bought in FL and had shipped to VA.

Second time I took it out to shoot it, the pivot pin in the hand broke.

I also noted that the cam was worn badly though you can't really tell from the following photo.

So I made a new pivot pin and installed it in the hand by center punching the pin in the hand.

I also drove the cam out of the hammer by about a 16th inch and reshaped the face of it.

The revolver cycles very well now.

I did not heat treat the part because I have only a little knowledge of heat treating and I did not want to do more harm than good.

I'll let y'all know how it holds up.

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government. Thomas Jefferson
