How would you know that, NUTTY JOHN?andy said:That[s why they THINK that their gun is ok. Ask Jerry mikulek how often his smiths sneak back to the factory (if he'll tell you the TRUTH, that is. ) He probably has a dozen of them on hand, and a dozen more at the factory.
If you are talking about S&W revolvers, you're completely wrong about how to go about checking cylinder play.andy said:First thing is to bring a bit of friction against the side of cylinder, with a bit of pressure from a finger slowly thumb cock the hammer. After full cocked, try to rotate the cylinder further, by hand. If it moves even a little bit further, you have wear, and it's usually in the hand. It's usually fixable with a bit of heat and some peening of the front end of the hand. The other stuff is harder to diagnose, need a range-rod, basically, and even then, you are just guessing, in many cases.
