Re: H&R Cylinder play
this is a hard call without having the gun in hand but here what i do. find a wooden dowel that is the approximate size of the bore. it must be able to move in the bore under gravity. hold the revolver with barrel pointing into the air. work the action as if firing. do not release trigger (keep it held back) now drop the wooden dowel into the bore. if it does not drop all the way thru the cylinder onto the breech face do not fire as it will shave lead and may be dangerous. do this on all the chambers. the fore-and aft play is not as important as the alignment with the bore.
