maybe I'm reading that model number wrong.

does anyone know if parts for bluejackets are still available?

yes, I have one, no...it doesn't work right. I'd kind of like to get it running.

almost identical.

mine is engraved (no comment), has a front sight, and the top of the frame doubles as a rear sight notch (like the older s&w revolvers.

belonged to my grandfather (I have to assume forever ago).

I have the urge to get it running, and maybe shoot it. (although, I get the feeling it's gonna be a pricey and long road to make a shooter of it)

What's wrong with the one you have?

If they don't trust us with guns, how can we trust them with the government?

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen". Samuel Adams,
