Have a look at these two my f.i.l. is giving to me.
a) what are they and how old?
b) the first one needs a mag, the second one a firing pin - first of all are they worth repairing?
c) how to go about repairing the missing firing pin, just drop them off at at a gunsmith for a going over and fix-em up?
Have another one, an old 38 revolver with a loose firing pin. It wobbles and rotates. Is this a safety hazard (for range use) or is it normal?
For parts I would try Numrich, they stock many hard to find parts.

My dad has a colt 1903 just like that. It was my Grandfather's issue weapon when he was an LAPD cop way back in the day. Great little guns. Depending on condition they can be valued anywhere from $350-1,000+. Great little gun. I would agree that it would be good to have a reputable gunsmith check them out.
