Default taurus raging bull 500 magnum

my dad has a taurus raging bull that has a hammer lock built in the back side of the hammer and he cant find the key or tool (not sure what they call it or what it looks like myself) anyway was wandering if there was a way to get a new one or some other way to unlock it? Thanks for your help

Call S & W customer service or ask for a tech. They have helped me in the past.

I Don't think I would call Smith and Wesson I would be more apt to call Taurus

If he just wants to get it unlocked and isnt worried about locking it back up he could probably hit a gun shop and one of their keys would work

turns out that it wasnt locked at all the pin that goes through the cylinder was loose and wasnt depressing the latch inside the frame wich wouldnt allow the pistol to cock. but thanks to everyone for your ideas!

For the record, that happens on Taurus's a lot. That's pretty much the ONLY problem I've ever experienced with their all-steel revolvers, but it has happened to every one of them I've owned or had much experience with.

Pretty simple to deal with. Either drop a dab of loc-tite on the threads one of these days, or just be conscious to double check that from time to time. while shooting. Pretty similar to making sure your broadheads or field points are snug into your arrows before you shoot. Really not that big of a deal.
