Crane for Colt Police Positive Special 32-20 WCF

I have acquired a well used Colt Police Positive Special in .32-20 WCF and it needs a new crane and a few other pieces. Where would be the best place to start looking for this besides Numrich a they are out. I don't particularly care if it is new or used, it just needs to work as this pistol is not going to win any beauty contest.

There should be any number of Colt collectors websites. I'd do a Google search and start there.

Worst case? Get in touch with Colt's official collector's association. I THINK it's listed on the Colt website.

Taking into account that Colt cranes do need fitting, all Colt Police Positive Special cranes were interchangeable with no special cranes for the 32-20.
Any caliber Police Positive Special crane made before WWII will work, but post-war cranes had a different cylinder crane retention design and won't interchange with the older guns.
The post-war guns are listed as "D" frames.

BE SURE you're clear that this is for a pre-war model.

For PPS parts:
