  1. No properly working revolver, no matter how fast you cock it, should ever over rotate.

    To the  OP, remove the cylinder and grips, using compressed air blow out all open areas that give you access to the inside of the frame.

    Especially where the cylinder stop comes up through the bottom inside of the frame.

    Same goes for the cylinder pawl at the back inside of the frame.

    Ck all screws for tightness.

  2. Send it back.

    You can send it directly to a FFL.

    Tell'em to supply you with a pre-paid shipper.

    You will have to take it to a FedX or UPS hub. Do NOT go to USPS.

    Agreed on the thread sealer for the bolts, but for the gasket you gotta read the instructions. Some say to use sealer, while others specifically say do NOT use any sealer.

    The sealer I have always used is a spray on.

    With Felt-Pro and that sealer, I've never had another issue.

    This is what I use, and it works.

    Permatex® Copper Spray-A-Gasket® Hi-Temp Sealant

    Number: 80697



  4. There's a tacky headgasket spray you can get from NAPA. Get it and use it on both sides of the headgasket.

    Use thread sealer on the head bolts. 

    RE-TORQUE the head bolts after the first 1K miles and again at 3K.

    Change the engine oil at 1K miles after head work.

    Lumpy, have you tried 7.0 grains of Unique with those bullets and that primer?



    I started with Bullseye and tried Unique.

    The targets told me to stay with 231.

    BTW, 231 was developed especially for the .45 acp cartridge by Winchester. 

    Bullseye was/is just to temperature sensitive and has to much lot to lot variation for me.

    I would go to Unique if 231 disappears.

    The fourth Saturday match at the Cajon Cowboys gives you a choice of shooting six or eight stages. The match fees are the same but if you want to shoot the two extra stages you can. The two extra stages are scored separately. They started doing this during the hot months and have continued it. It seems to work out well.

    Something other clubs should seriously consider.  ;)

    We all were but in this time when the police are being attacked from every direction the last time that we need is to demean ourselves.I seldom agree with Alpo but the term is insulting and childish 

    Strange you say such, when former LEO'S on this forum posted just the opposite about the term.
