I recently inherited a Model 1897 .22 from my grandfather, that was his grandfathers before. It was manufactured in 1899 and in pretty good shape for sitting in a shipping container for the last 30 years.

When I got it home I started a thorough inspection and cleaning to make sure I could one day use it to teach my son to shoot. My uncle in-law who’s more experienced with lever actions aided me in the process. After taking off the magazine we discovered that the follower was separated and actually broke the outer tube where they connect.

We both spent some time looking around for a replacement and found a few. But I would like to keep all the original parts on the gun if possible.

Any advise would be much appreciated, thank you.
