Brass is definitely an option.

Hi, I ordered this stuff to do a case hardening on the Paterson wedge:

This stuff should also be useful to harden the hammer face of Pietta Colt revolvers.

I think this stuff is like Kasenit?

Regards,
Richard

This G&G has some odd characteristics.

Dark grips.
Color case loading lever.

I hate those reviews by people that haven't even shot the gun yet but are still saying how great it is and giving it 5 stars.

A lot of those reviews are overly effusive and gushing, as if the guys were paid to post them. 

Iím very reluctant, almost unwilling, to buy anything that canít be returned.

From 1996 to present I have purchased 8 pistols from Cabelaís (just to pick a vendor).  Of these, one was returned once and 3 guns twice for 7 returns on 4 guns. Eventually I was in possession of good ones, all.  Canít start putting up with shoddy goods.  Being assertive in these matters is sometimes necessary and pays off in the end.  So, as to Cabelaís Ė Iím a reservedly happy customer, but it took some doing.  So much for "consumer confidence".

The mould is brass...why not try using a solid piece of 7/32 brass rod and stake the ends?

I'm assuming they are on the Cimarron site.  I cant find them though.  You have the link?

I hope to use it if I can get it fixed properly.  Whoever previously "fixed" it didn't use a good fitting rivet and the two halves would wobble all over the place.  May just need a steel pin flattened on the ends.  Will figure something out.  Thanks for the input Hewy.

Are you planning on using it ?  I'm sure the pivot pin is pressed in.
You could do that with a matched size pin and a bench vice.Looks like
the repair pin was hammered in.
