Send it back to colt to be fixed. Take it to a Smith to fix. What he means is its got a rough spot and wont turn freely on the center pin

Would this be considered a defect that Colt would fix for free? Just curious but I have a feeling I know the answer.

The rachet is damaged on the Mag. cylinder. This has caused the hand to rachet time to be off. Colt will have a charge for this type of repair. I would take it to a local GS for repair. The shipping on this to Colt will get pricey for a small repair.

With the cylinder out of the gun, does the cylinder pin slide in and out of the cylinder freely? Does the cylinder turn freely on the pin? If it binds the center hole in cylinder has a problem.

If it does move freely then my guess is that the cylinder is too long. With the mag cylinder in the gun and the hammer in the loading position(2nd click) turn the cylinder by hand several revolutions(it should only turn clock-wise). Is it binding? If not then nitestalker is likely correct. If it is binding then - pull the cylinder and inspect it to see where the blue is being rubbed off. Most likely will be the front center(around the center hole). Possible wear in cylinder front half way between center hole and edge. Check those things and let us know what is does.

Thanks hiwall, I will let you know as soon as I get home. Thanks again for the advise.

Okay hiwall, the cylinder moves freely on the pin. However as soon as I place the cylinder in the gun thats when I have problems. I can move the cylinder by hand several revolutions but every now and then it wants to stick and I have to get a little forceful to rotate it. I believe it is getting jammed towards the front of the cylinder whenever it touches the chamber but only at one or two spots. I would have to assume that this means the cylinder it too long. So how do I rectify the problem? Thanks

I think that is the problem but..... But I don't want to say any thing else without looking for myself. At this point I say take it to a local gunsmith. Or put the cylinder away and just shoot the 22 LR cylinder. Some things are just better left to the professional.

Another thing to look at is the pin that the cylinder rotates on is bent.

Roll it on a piece of glass and listen for "clicks" (like checking a motor pushrod).

A new pin can be picked up inexpensively.
