If I am not mistaken, there were "replacement" cylinders sold for these. They were chambered for modern ammo. That may be what you had. As far as other issues, you are going to need to do some training, like lifting weights with your trigger finger. Double action is the toughest trigger pull I have ever experienced, it must have been near 20#.
It is a fun revolver to play with when you get the tactical speed reloading thing under control.
