It sounds like the hand or lever that rotates the cylinder is sticking in its slot until there's slight pressure on the trigger.Thanks for the info. Another question about the trigger action. I noticed the cylinder is free spinning which I understand is normal unless in fully cocked then it should be locked up. My question is there seems to be a small click in the trigger when barely pulled which then creates a clicking when the cylinder is spun and will not allow the cylinder to spin in the reverse direction. Is this normal or is there something catching in the trigger? As for ammunition, I found some Ten X 38 short colt, is this the correct ammo or should it simply be the 38 s&w.
