Smith & Wesson 67-1 Resurrection
I was unsuccessful at removing the black corrosion from the hammer, so I bobbed it. The original hammer and trigger are flash chromed, so I had to consider refinishing my work afterwards. Other work at this point includes a reshaping of the triggerguard, radiusing the front of the cylinder, cleaning up the lines of the gun, and overall polishing. A set of Magna grips was fitted.
Finally, rather than sending the hammer and trigger to an outfit like Fords for a hardchroming, I came across a NOS case hardened target trigger and hammer. I prefer the wider trigger anyway, so the set was purchased and fitted to the 67-1. The case hardening is not exactly correct, but it is evocative of the nickel guns of days gone by. The new grip is a nylon Hogue Monogrip. Future plans include serrating the topstrap beside the rear sight, and slicking up the action with another thousand dry fires.
With the next hard chrome job I farm out, I'll send my bobbed hammer. Then if I ever find a snubby Model 10, I'll have the hammer ready.
