Eastern Arms was a trade name sold by Sears Roebuck. It may have been made by any one of several manufacturers. If you take it to a good gunsmith, he may recognize it as a particular Iver Johnson or H&R model and find parts for it. He can probably make a spring, and the trigger guard may be repairable if he cannot find a replacement.
Eastern Arms was a trade name used by Sears for guns they sold (made by others) have a gunsmith check your gun- Possibly Iver Johnson or H&R parts may fit. Good luck!

Eastern Arms was a Sears Roebuck trade name and the only reference I find listing a .38 revolver says they were made by Meriden Arms, which was a Sears subsidiary and in business only from c. 1905-1915. If your gun has grips marked Forhand Arms, I'd bet that the whole gun was made by that company and marked with the Sears name. That would agree with your estimate of the age as the Forehand name was used from 1890 to 1902. The only top-break .38 Revolver I find listed is the "Perfection Automatic" but my references disagree on the exact dates of production. The Standard Catalog of Firearms says 1898-1902 while The 1983 Official Price Guide says they were all made before 1899. The Standard Catalog suggests a value of $150 in NRA Very Good condition. I don't think the Eastern name would affect the value either way.
The Marlin model 38 was a pump action .22cal rifle made from 1920-1930.If there are any parts available it would be at Numrich arms Corp.They can be found on the web.
