I may try it anyway Charlie, I'm gonna have to replace it if I can't so, what the heck. I'm thinking, since it's getting reblued, maybe a little light pry upwards at the rear. It's going to take a very light touch though, the piring-pin strikes are only slightly off-center. I'll take a pic to show you.
You can see the first three rounds better due to the light but, they're off-center. In a pistol this just means somebody used a slightly longer link to aid lockup but, in a properly-timed and indexed revolver, they're dead-center.
Even with this, it shot a 2" group,centered at 25 yards with two different shooters firing three shots each.
