    S&W Revolver Parts

    I recently purchased a very nice Smith & Wesson model 64-5 .38 revolver. It was a department of corrections weapon, and has identifying marks stamped into the side plate. The gun is in otherwise pretty good condition, but I would like to replace the side plate. I found one locally, but it didn't fit quite right.

    Where can I find this part, preferably inexpensively? Used would be fine. Any suggestions?

    Try Numrich Gun Parts Corporation. They have tons of parts for older guns. I believe their site is gunpartscorp.com

    Finding a used one to fit will be nearly impossible. Each side plate is hand fitted.
    A wise man once said: "Bugout bag?..What's that? Is that all the junk you sidewalk commandos plan on humping when the SHTF...I'll grab a Nylon 66, a box of 22s and a poncho liner and in less than a week I will have all of your stuff and everything else that I need for the duration."

    Well, you can find a new plate but they are hand fitted. Finding one that fits is very unlikely. If you do get a new one, it will have to be fitted by a competent gunsmith.

    The S&W side plates, like cylinders, are not 'one size fits all.' They have to be fitted by a gunsmith. Not a big deal just find a REAL gunsmith not just someone who has, like 1/2 the population, been through the Glock Armors Course.
