I have an Armi Jager 1873 SAA in .44-40 that I suspect was also made in the 1980's with a 5-1/2 barrel, we got a lot Armi Jager revolving carbines down here but the pistola's are pretty rare.

Just came across your post--I have a Jager just like yours. One of the best shooting and most accurate (for me) single action revolvers I own. Came to me well-used and with a broken hand spring. Turned out the spring is an odd size and no replacement was available from the usual parts vendors. After some searching on the net, I read where a guy had used the spring from the pair of scissors on a swiss army knife (!??) So I took a chance and ordered a 10 pack of the springs (for, like $6)--it fit perfectly, gun runs great and I have 9 spares!
I like Jagers and think they're a good deal--
