Default Removing the cylinder.

Make sure to secure the cylinder tightly, either by holding it firmly or wrapping it in a cloth and putting it in a bench vise. This is done to prevent scarring or scratching. Use the picture posted here as a guide. The extractor rod screws into the ratchet assembly with a reverse thread. (Screwing it in loosens it, unscrewing it tightens it.) Use a small amount of WD40 to dribble down the inside and exterior of the extractor rod. Gently turn the extractor rod clockwise until it releases and unscrews from the ratchet assembly. The ratchet assembly is physically pinned to the extractor/latch. Do not try to take them apart. Clean, then lightly oil the parts before re-assembly. You're done.

Default One less caliber...

Found out that .38 S&W is actually .361... The Medusa is for .355-.357 dia...

Default 38 s&w

Hmmm. I've shot several hundred of the .38 S&W out of all the Medusas I have and they are very accurate. The lead bullets are not fouling the chambers or cylinders any more than the others. Where did those specs come from?

Default Lanyard

Did I ever mention that I designed a hole in the butt of the frame for all Medusas so that you could use a lanyard? Check it out. And, while you have the grips off, you can adjust your own trigger pull. (!)

Hello, I'm a new member.
I just wanted to say I joined the site because of this thread. For years I've been fascinated by the Medusa revolver. The amount of information I've found here ("accurate information" I should say, as compared to other sites), and seeing posts from the creator of the Medusa... I couldn't resist joining.

And by the way, I'm hoping to become an owner soon. I've only been waiting about half my life.

Let's hope he does, and I hope your beloved 'Dusa is back in working order soon.

Over the years I've discussed the Medusa with many friends, and created a few more people seeking one out. (I realize this was a mistake now, as I'm creating more demand for a limited supply.) I've missed a couple chances to buy one because I had to be sensible. Now I've finally managed to convince myself that the sensible move is to buy one instead of putting it off until "someday".

Like TheBlackFedora I also registered to say how awesome I think this revolver is. If it was available today, at that price (adjusted for inflation) I would snap one up in a heart beat. I think the market for a multi-caliber revolver like this has never been better. Combined with the advances in machining bringing them back to market could also be easier than ever.

Who owns the rights to these designs or patents?
