Default Worn sear worth replacing?

Picked up a old double action revolver, the rear sear is a bit worn where it won't catch the hammer to shoot single action. Cylinder locks up tight, double action functions fine. The gun was cheap, probably not worth much. Keep it as a plinker in double action Only? Or find a sear, try my hand at replacing it and hope I don't screw something else up? Jim

We talking an S&W or an Iver Johnson?

The part is only $20. Its a old s&w top break 38. It functions now, just not sure if it will function if I take it apart and put it back together again. Jim

grow a set. It just might work and you'll learn something. If you fuck it up, it's worth $20 in parts to somebody. Go boldly into the guts, my friend!

Sometimes the sear isn't a drop in part. Might require hand fitting. Might drop in. I would just leave it as it is, a plinker

It's a sw top break in 38 cal. There's a rear sear that's worn and doesn't catch the notch in the hammer to hold the hammer back.jim

Those should be fairly easy to do yourself. I've owned and worked on (a while back) numerous Iver Johnson and S&W top breaks in .32 and .38 and I can't remember ever having to fit anything with those guns. They were a very simple, basic design.
