I am attempting to restore a Model 1854 Lefaucheux 12 mm Pin Fire Revolver. This is on e of the French Revolvers purchased for the U.S. Army, ( Confirmed by SN#)

  The hammer at some time was converted to fire a rim fire cartridge by adding a firing pin and cutting off the pin fire Hammer Nose. I'd like to purchase a large frame pin fire hammer, with the nose in usable condition, as I'm going to harvest the original hammer nose and rebuild the original hammer.

Any of the screws, spring or latch on the loading gate would be a welcome find as well.
