1860 Army parts?

I'm looking for a bolt or two also a hand. I've got a sick Centaure and I'm told the Pietta's can be made to fit. Anyone got spares rattling around in a parts bin?

May be able to help...

... not that I have the parts but know someone who might. Went to my goodpals today (BP gunsmith) looking for non-existant parts myself. He had them in his shop and in short order, I was out the door. Can you send me pics of what you need?

Yes...

... This digram is more clear.

So... I see Part #4 is $19.95 and Part #10 is $29.50 also seems to be in stock. How else can I help?

Birch, thanks for your input, I decided to ship it to a smith since the parts will need to be hand fitted to the revolver. He has all the parts in stock so should be able to do the job quickly and easily. And his price was more than fair... I'll report back when I see the pistol again!

FWIW, the lockwork of the 1860 and the 1851 is the same, so if someone says they don't have 60 Army parts ask about 51 Navy parts.
