Default end shake?

about how many rounds before end shake starts showing up and how to fix it? i have a service six, i bought it from a guy who's uncle used it as a duty weapon. he said that he would estimate about 5000 rds have been through it. it is tight on lockup with no problems, just thought i would ask in case it happen's to me. I am keeping this gun and will be handing it down to my son. i'm not putting much through it, i shoot every few weeks mabe 20rds or so. thanks

Just my non-expert opinion, but I suspect there is no set number of rounds.
Much depends on the type of use. If you shoot mild .38 loads vs. fire breathing full strength hunting loads, things will hold up longer.
As I understand things, it's not typically a big deal to get fixed.
Those Ruger "Six" revolvers have a reputation for being exceptionally durable. You may never need to mess with it.

my lockup is nearly unmovable and back and forth play is unmovable, it won't budge back and forth. the cylinder even at rest is real tight. but if i release it, it spins straight and true. i guess i like planning ahead but on some things it's not necessary. thanks

Ruger is really a revolver brand that is severely overbuilt. You really dont have to worry about it.

However like any gun it should be inspected at every cleaning. If something does not look right contact ruger. But i doubt you will ever need to do anything to it. I put several thkusand a year through my new vaqueros in 45 colt and doubt im ever going to have issues

i took my service six apart when i got it to clean it, the cylinder snaps onto those 2 bearings on the crane and once on them won't move back and forth. i wonder how end shake could happen with this type of setup.

it pretty much doesnt. if you spend 24 hours a day 7 days a weak snapping it shut taking it apart over and over nonstop for a year it might develop some wear.

Your Six does not have to be rock tight on lockup. A small amount of end shake is normal. It will not interfere with shooting at all. A rock hard lockup is expected only on some target models with two locking hands. As a result their timing has to be extremely precise (a common source of complaints about the Colt Python)

I have not shot any revolver enough to bust the cylinder loose.
