Default Top lever hammers

Are say size 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 and 6 frame hammers all the same size ?

If not which frame sizes are if any ? By that I mean if you removed the actual “hammer” from the lock are they the same . If so which are the same .

I think they are all the same size, although I have seen a few Parker hammers without a serial number stamped but with a single digit stamped and I donít know what it represents.

So then they should all be relatively interchangeable ?

To the best of my knowledge, yes, but others like Brian may have a different experience.

They are all the same basically. And will function fine. There may be minor differences from gun to gun, but they have nothing to do with frame size. But these differences do not effect function.
