Armi San Marco 1860 Army .44

Does anyone know where I might find a replacement, Fluted Cylinder, for my ASM Army 1860 .44 ?
When I bought it Armi San Marco was still in production. I used it a lot without paying much attention to the wear taking place. It's a terrific shooter and I hate seeing it in such ragged condition. I want to find a new cylinder and fine tune the whole gun.
It seems every manufacturer uses different specs in their production. :0(

Thanks for your help

Dixie Gun Works
Numrich Arms

You might find one at Wiunchester Sutler, although he does mainly ASP.

Waldron Indiana - Deer Creek I think the number starts in area code 765.

You should be able to find a cylinder for it but fluted might give you trouble.

Vti response

Thanks for the input.
I had already checked VTI Web Site and several others with no encouragement.
I also discovered that American Western Arms bought out ASM around 2000 - 2001. AWA also referred me to VTI.

So.... I decided to call this morning. VTI bought all remaining ASM parts when they sold out but did not receive any 44 Caliber cylinders?
They strongly recommended the Pietta 1860 fluted cylinder saying that it could be made to work.
I have made contact with a local Pietta Dealer and I'm waiting to hear back.

Thanks again.
