    I have a older CVA .31 cal Remington pocket model. Was wondering if anyone here knows if the parts from pietta are interchangeable? The handpawl broke during shooting. Need a new replacement.

    Most likely not. You might try VTI , or Dixie gun works, Gun parts corp, and or Ebay.

    If it was manufactured before the use of CNC machines by the Italians (it probably is) it is possible that even an original factory made part may need to be hand fitted. It may or may not drop in and work.

    I don't know the answer to your original question but if it's a cheap enough part it might be worth trying knowing that if it is not a perfect match it can probably be hand fitted with a file and a little research.

    The metal on these are usually soft so even if it's too short it can easily be stretched by hammering the smooth back part of a hardened drill bit laying across the middle of the hand which would be flat on a hard surface. It will crease the middle but the length of the hand will increase. The rest can be done with a file and a bit of corrective hammering if needed. Keep clear of the spring.

    The hand on Remingtons have a hole rather than a post (I am not sure about the pocket model) like the Colt's

    If the hole is too small it can be widened if it's too big that might be a problem.

    There is also the possibility that it might be practical at all.
