Title: Euroarms New Model Navy
Post by: Biggfoot44 on February 01, 2020, 05:11:33 PM
  Today I aquired a Euroarms New Model Navy .36 . It was said ( by reputable specialist dealer that I've known and dealt with on multiple occasions ) to be probably unfired , and the condition seams to be consistent with that . Getting home , I googled for the Proof Mark date codes , and this seems to be 1985 mfg .

   What can y'all tell me about this ? A Euroarms of this era generally , or Navy's generally . What if any parts interchange ?  Do I correctly understand that at particular points in time , Euroarms produced guns marked for Navy Arms ? Not that I have a burning desire , but from curiosity , are there available ctg conversion cylinders for this ?

    The finish is consistent with unfired , or very minimal . Lock up and timing is good . The hammer pull back feels like a chevy truck spring , but trigger pull is smooth , with not nearly as heavy as expected . I'd have to dig out my trigger scale , but my educated finger says 6-7 lb . Much nicer trigger than my last two AR's .

Euroarms formerly ASP are pretty good guns and closer in size to an original than Pietta or Uberti. Pedersoli bought them out 9 or 10 years ago. Uberti conversion cylinders are supposed to work but getting any other parts is a crap shoot. I think VTI still has a few parts in stock but when they're gone they're gone. It may be possible to make Uberti or Pietta parts work but they wont be drop in. Navy Arms at one time did import Euroarms.
