View Full Version : Super Blackhawk parts question

March 22, 2011, 01:50 AM
I've lost a frame screw out of my pistol. Specifically, #19 on the schematic link below:


Now, What is this "and pivot lock" referred to in the part name? What does it do? I've ordered a replacement screw from Brownell's, but I got concerned as to the function of this "pivot lock". Is this something that has to be fitted by a smith, or is just replacing the screw all that needs to be done?

Thanks in advance for your response!

Best Regards,

It's been awhile since I had one, but I think:
The screw also holds the hammer pivot pin in place, in the frame.

AhHaaa! Looking closely at the hammer pivot on the schematic, I can see the detent on the right end of the pin that the nose of the screw fits into.

Things are much clearer now------and I do thank you for your assistance Mr. Whillikers! :) I appreciate it!!!!
