    I believe the IDPA crowd allows local rules....

    Round count question

    Your hundred year old Smith uses a completely different retention screw design for the yoke. The old design requires hand fitting of the screw, and requires the correct screw to be put into the front sideplate hole on reassembly. I've worked on a lot of old guns with the hand-fit yoke screw put into the wrong sideplate hole. The current S&W yoke screw design is a copy of the old Colt system. It works great unless excess force is used at the back of the cylinder. Only have to push it out once to damage the yoke, then it pops out easier. If you have a small notch in the edge of the V-groove, it didn't leave the factory that way.

    What the hell is a "thumb assist?"

    Virginia stage penalty question

    Why didn't you ask to speak with the range master?
  7. The double action trigger weight isn't the determining factor, the amount of spring weight on the hammer is. The weight of the trigger is linked to the weight of the hammer, but there's more to it than that.

    Anyone ever Arb a local?

    I tried to arbitrate when I was given procedurals for following the stage description not the designers "intent." In the end they dropped the procedurals.

    IDPA Revolver??

    Yes, and my point was that Rob wears his moonclips behind the left hip the same as his single stack magazines. If it's fast enough for a USPSA championship, it's fine for any IDPA match in America.

    Round count question

    I would agree with stripping it down once a year, but it depends on usage. Shooting 10k a year my revo was ready for a clean each year before our ICORE regional. Now, shooting a lot of production, I could probably go two years. It is good to go thru the gun periodically looking for problems, but our guns are sealed up pretty well. Most of the dirt inside mine appears to be powder residue that blows in thru the slot for the hand.

    Is your hip in a different location than a shooter of more typical proportions?

    Round count question

    Gas cutting is a self-limiting problem. It slows down as the surface gets further away from the cylinder. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

    Do the sights track like you need them to? If so, wash your hands after shooting. If not, move hands to where you need them to be. Shooting revo, I'm used to dirty thumbs. The cylinder gap can be messy. On target performance is more important than clean hands. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

    Roll crimp for moon clips?

    I'm currently using the 158 grain round nose from S&S Casting because it has a crimp groove. I do prefer a roll crimp. That said, my 625 runs just fine with a taper crimp. My 627PC has the chambers chamfered from the factory and needed to modification. Is your cylinder chamfered? It doesn't take much, just enough to clear the thickness of the case. Could it be something else? During dry fire recently I noticed the moon clip was hanging up on the cylinder release. I use a SDM cylinder release, the checkering is very sharp and comes all the way to the edge. I put a slight radius on the edge of the release and my reloads are more consistent. I've been chasing a problem with my reloads hanging up intermittently for several years, and this solved it for me. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
