Review:

Suggestion: MAKE SURE YOU HOLD ONTO THE BROKEN ONE FOR DIMENSIONAL REFERENCE!

As other reviewers have noted, this is almost certainly going to require some degree of filing. On my 33 year old ASM 1851 repro (.44 cal), the new pawl assembly fit splendidly into the hammer slot right out of the package, and the spring was bent at just the correct angle. Nevertheless, it did require about 2 hours using a flat file to get the length, height, and angles of the pawl just right.

If you're into black powder, you know this interest can be a labor of love.

The construction on this pawl assembly appears very sturdy, and the spring looks as though it's set in there nice and firm. Overall, this strikes me as a far superior unit to the one ASM originally used.

Shipping was lightning fast, by the way!

First purchase from Dixie Gun Works, and I'm very pleased! :)

God bless!
