A couple years ago, I sent an inquiry to the Consorzio Armaioli Italiani asking if they knew who was hiding behind the PR mark, and this is what Ms Monica Cancarini answered:
"PR is a proof mark for RIVA ESTERINA. The company stopped their production at the end of 1979/1980 (more or less)."
This being consistent with what the proofhouse told me, I believe PR to be one of the trade marks Riva Esterina used.

Sounds good to me.  I've never heard of Riva Esterina until now.  What other trade marks did they use?

I believe the PR logo is for Pierino Ruschetta based on a lengthy post about manufacturers on TFL   (  that included this post:

It lists all Italian gun makers from 1945-1980.

There is a Pierino Ruschetta listed, and I think the PR is him!

I recall reading somewhere that Numrich bought out all of the Old Army parts from Ruger.

They might have; but, there are no hands (Pawls) listed, much less on hand.

Ruger? Pretty sure parts are still in production even if the guns aren't...

Ruger has no parts for the Old Army.

I know.  This is a Colt forum.  But a friend needs some help.  Anyone know where I can get a hand for a Ruger old army?

I've done it to six of my CAS main match guns.  Don't have to worry about breaking a handspring and helps smooth the action.  I highly recommend it.

Back to the top.

Hi, closely held beliefs are a terrible thing to waste. I was always taught that a single action revolver hammer should never be brought down except from full cock.

I shoot 2-4 SASS matches a month to include annuals, regionals and Winter Range in Feb.  All of my shooting is done with BP or sub, and most matches are shot with one of about 5 pair of C&B guns that I use in competition.  I go through 1500 to 2000 round balls a year shooting SASS.  I also occasionally use one of 3 pair of cartridge guns for SASS in .38, .44-40 and .45 Colt. All with BP.

Is the ASM marking on the frame or under the barrel?
