Arminius ARM .357

My friend has gotten what he thinks is a deal on a used Arminius ARM .357 single action revolver. It is missing the cylinder latch and spring.

I searched all my usual sites for parts and came up with nothing for this model.

I have a feeling his "deal" might be a loss.

Does anyone know if parts for this model are available, or will he end up having a smith make a part?

A general idea of what that would cost might help him some.

Also search on "Weihrauch" or "Hermann Weihrauch".

Arminius revolvers were never a quality firearm, but better than some. They were imported until the 1970s, if I am not mistaken. I doubt you will find a spare cylinder just sitting around anywhere. I would advise your friend to pass on this deal.
Never try to educate someone who resists knowledge at all costs.
But what do I know?

Good guns when they're working. Let it go unless you can get it for 25 bucks or so and don't mind looking for parts for a few years.
