    I'm looking for parts for a friend of mine who has a CVA .31 caliber Cap & Ball short barrel revolver. There are several internal issues with it so not sure what exact parts but was wondering if anyone knows of a good place to get parts or a kit for this. (I believe I'll be needing a cylinder hand & trigger spring)

    Wish I had more info on the gun itself, there was no model # or anything that I could see. If I get a chance I'll put a few pictures up this weekend.

    Any info is appreciated.

    Edit: I measured the barrel length it is 3-3/4"

    Is it a colt or Remington copy? The colt will be open top and the Remington will have a full frame.

    CVA parts

    Try Deer Creek Products, Waldron Indiana phone 765 525 6181. I think they bought CVA parts when CVA went to other things I know for a fact they have parts for 31, the complete set. They are not on line

    My no name '49 Colt has a timing issue if you do the drag test or slowly pull back the hammer.

    It now takes place on only two chambers since I attempted to cold forge/swage the hand to make it longer using a flat hammer on the anvil portion of my bench vise. I plan to give it a few more wacks this week sometime. If I make it too long, I can always stone it back shorter.

    Fun little gun anyhow......

    Just in case someone decides not to repair I am looking for a junker for parts.

    The most important part I need is the loading lever assembly but I would be interested in buying a non working complete gun for in the $80 range .

    I am rebuiding an original 1850's Belgium copy of the Colt Pocket and plan to adapt parts to fix.

    Replica Colt 31 cal Pocket .
