41mag Posted January 29, 2008 Share Posted January 29, 2008 Hi folks, I don't have this gun in my hands yet but will in the next day or two, it belongs to a friend of mine. When I dropped by the other day he let me fire it and I of course fired it double action. I dry fired it first to get a feel for the trigger and there was a couple places where I could feel it hanging up. I then proceeded to locate the problem and found that the cylinder was hitting the barrel, not all the way around but in a couple of spots. He had been shooting lead and there was some build up on the cylinder so he cleaned it off. I then dry fired again and it was fine. I started putting some rounds down range and on the third shot it was back to rubbing. I didn't measure the end shake yet but it didn't feel bad. The BC gap did look pretty tight (not measured yet). My guess right now is that the endshake is to much for the tight BC gap and the cylinder moves forward during recoil. I also think something might not be square as it doesnt rub all the way around. I couldn't tell that anything was bent or out of alignment by spinning the cylinder and looking at it paying attention to the ejector rod. The gun is a 25-5 S&W 45 Colt. I told my friend that I would get to the bottom of the problem and fix it for him if I could and that I had a great resource at my side with all the knowledgeable folks here on the Enos revolver forum (sucking up). I thank you for any help in this matter that you can give me. thanks, 41mag Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
