I don't see "flame cutting" only a dirty revolver that has not been cleaned in a long, long, time. It's not uncommon to see abused IJ revolvers shot alot and left dirty. They also tend to shoot loose at the joint and latch. Sometimes, the latch screw will bend or stretch. Giving the screw a 1/2 turn may tighten it up. But if anyone wants to shoot one of these load some shells with black powder first.
