I have an Intercontinental Arms Dakota 357 Single action revolver made in 1964.
I need a firing pin, firing pin retainer rivet, base pin latch assembly and some other screws.
The firing pin is old style concave Colt style mounted on the hammer.
I'm having trouble finding these parts. Who actually made this gun?
It is labelled Made in Italy, so it's not a Hammerli.
I've been told it could possibly be made by Armi San Marco or Jaeger. Will any other parts cross?

Another idea is Interarms But I suspect that is an import company name. Google
is a friend...

Dakota made by UBERTI for Intercontinental Arms. I can honestly say that I don't
think this gun has ever been fired. EXTREMELY CLEAN AND TIGHT. What appears to
be wear on left front of frame in one of the pictures is just camera flash.
357mag/38spl. 5.5" barrel, six shot single action cowboy revolver.

This guy was selling them - Google : intercontinental arms dakota
and there are a number of pages.

I think you needed Uberti .

I never heard of the importer, but there were a lot of small outfits
that imported virtually the same guns under a lot of different brand
names back then. One place to look up such is the catalog sections of
Gun Digests of the period, one reason I've got a fair number of back
copies on hand. The local library may have some.

Firing pins and rivets should be easy to make up, given a certain
amount of machining skill. Screws, ditto, if the threads are
standard, either metric or SAE. Brownell's has blank screws that can
be adapted and threaded to suit. The latch may be more of a
challenge. With that many parts damaged or missing, was this a "bag"
gun by any chance? Just a brown paper bag of parts?

Gun Parts/Numrich would be the go-to guys, they'd have parts if anyone
would. Might even have some record of the actual maker. Given that
it WAS '64, there's a good chance the company is no longer in business
or no longer has repair parts. Chances are it's NOT a Colt clone with
exactly the same threads and dimensions. Other maker's parts may or
may not fit or be adapted, you'd have to have a bunch in front of you
to try out.

Inter continental arms was a firm of Armi Nuova Jager, also called in
the past Adler Arms or Armi jager. the dakota series was a 60/70 era
manufactured replicas of the 1873 peacemakers. I was owning one, in 357
, whit problems at the firing pin. I don't think that now the new
company Nuova Jaeger own replacing parts, new property, no manufacturer
only gun importer and trader. try at www.nuovajaeger.com

In the 60's through the 70's there was an Italian factory manufacturing single
action revolvers under numerous brand names. Nearly all parts are interchangeable.
As suggested in earlier posts Numrich likely be your best bet. Numrich is aware of
part interchangeably between the various brand names.
