Navy

When cycling the action the old Navy Schofield's 45 cylinder hangs on two of six. I need a good Schofield fixer-upper. Any tips? It's a nice shooter and I hate to see it gather dust.

Try Cody of the cowboy shop. Last I talked to him, he was still working on schofields.

Look for rub marks on the front of the cyl.

What's your barrel to cyl gap? You want at least .006-.008.

Thanks for the replies. Cylinder gap A-OK. I e-mailed Cody to see if he will take it.

Revolver loaded or empty?

Empty or loaded it makes no difference. I've miked everything and it is in spec. It runs smooth as baby's butt until it hits the 1st of the 2 cylinders and it locks up tight. I am thinking it might be the hand on the star wheel but I cannot find any burrs or other problems. Disassembled  the gun, removed the lawyer'd safety parts, and could find nothing internal causing the problem. I need an experienced smith to spot the problem. Waiting on Cody right now.

Tried Cody after a referral. Great work, great prices, quick turnaround. 5 Stars for his work and speedy return of my piece!
