  1. I believe it will depend on timeframe of production.  My early '72 pair in .38 special have smaller diameter cylinders and smaller ID frame dimensions than the pair of pistols I purchased from you in .44.  Therefore, the .44 cylinders will not fit within the frame dimensions of the .38 pistols.  The .38 cylinders do fit the .44 frame guns but with the larger frame opening dimension, the bolt doesn't engage the cylinder notches as strong as it should. The third .44 I purchased from you as a backup does interchange with both.38 caliber guns.  Almost identical cylinder diameter.

    Tomorrow I will get the digital caliper out and give you some diameter measurements.

  2. Source of short stroke kit?  Full parts replacement or cut and weld?  

    Maybe something related to the short stroke has changed such as a slightly bent lever.

    Just something to check before throwing more money at it.
