The E.M.F. Company (www.emf-company.com) offer a line of Italian single action clones. The parts will fit 1st. Generation Colt’s and I believe they have everything except frames.

Dixie Gun Works (www.dixiegunworks.com) also have many parts for Colt Single Action Army and C & B revolvers.

The Single Action Shooting Society (SASS) website at (www.sassnet.com) may provide additional leads on sources for parts.

Be aware that lockwork parts, such as hands, triggers, and cylinder bolts come as blanks, and like the originals have to be hand-fitted in each particular gun. Springs and screws won’t give you any problems though.

FWIW for the traveler :) : The most old Colt parts I've seen were with a dealer at the Deming, NM gunshow, although there was more than one table with parts. Some at the Wickenburg show. (These had late February dates, as I recall; don't know if these were once-a-year shows...)

There is a wide variety of threads in the gun screws in single action six guns. You best bet is to call Eddie Janis at Peacemaker. He knows more about those kind of parts than anyone else I know of.
