Easy fix, a few seconds with a stone. The cylinder screw shouldn't even put pressure on the crane. It should ride in a groove. If this is happening, the screw is too long, and can be honed down a few thousandths of an inch. I always recommend honing instead of using a grinding tool. Too easy to mess things up with a dremel.

It should, may take longer. If your needing some advice on some gunsmithing, you'd better give a VERY detailed explanation of what's going on, and include some close up, high quality, detailed pictures, along with an explanation of exactly what your trying to accomplish. Otherwise, a could end up leading you into completely ruining your gun.

Also, as a disclaimer, I have too tell you I am not a gunsmith. I learned a good deal about Smith and Wesson revolvers by working on a couple at my kitchen table (scaring the hell out of some Jehovah's witnesses in the process, but that's another story).

I can't recommend anyone doing like I did and just start taking things apart and altering them without knowing what they're doing.

I think most semi intelligent people would be just fine. But I worked on a cop's model 36, and he acted like it was witchcraft, completely unable to understand how I did the work.

Im no gunsmith just a competent person. If it looks too complicated I don't mess with it. I took the side panel off the model 19 and left it alone. I wanted to sand and polish the hammer and trigger plus the areas where they meet to smooth the action. I didn't feel comfortable about it so I didn't do it

That's exactly how I started. The most difficult part for me was figuring out how to get the hammer block back in just right. Everything else was cake.

Do not shoot +P's or +P+'s. Stay away from hot loads altogether. Do this and you'll be able to pass it down in the family.

BTW, the Model 19 and the 629 are my favorite S&W's.
Love my K frames (19, 13 & 65)

Yeah, search for Larry Potterfield. He has several step by step videos.
