I currently have a DA only SP101, and I'd sure like to have it as a SA/DA revolver. Numrich is out of the hammers right now, where else can I go to get one?

An 8# trigger return spring and a 9# hammer spring - you need both - for your SP from Wolff just might change your mind about DOA.

No, the DA is smoooooth and breaks nicely, that's not the issue. I simply want a "regular" hammer on it, as this will not be used for CCW. I do, however, want to retain the DAO only hammer for the time being, so simply having Ruger swap out the hammers won't work for me.

PTK, I posted a WTB over on AR15.com (and several other forums) to find a spurless hammer assembly for my SP101. Took several weeks, but eventually a guy who had one stepped up and sold it to me. You might try the same tack.

Some time back I picked up a spurred hammer off of ebay from a parted out gun. Might try http://www.jackfirstgun.com/ or http://www.poppertsgunparts.com/ . I once found a hammer for a GP by using a google search using the advanced menu. A gun dealer in Mass. had one. Also, it might take a while as noted above before you find one. Just keep searching.

ArchAngel, Ruger's policy is to sell hammers on a replacement-only basis, and they want you to send in the gun so that they can do the replacement. The OP wants to keep his original hammer, so unless Ruger has changed their policy or is willing to make an exception, buying directly from Ruger won't work.

What if my wife lost my hammer when she was cleaning ,or my dog ate it,or something strange like that. Could I send the Hammerless gun to Ruger to replace the hammer?

kck, I doubt it. In any case, I don't want to pay shipping back and forth for the whole gun - I'd be out quite a bit compared to if I could just find a hammer.
