I have a M 1895 Nagant and a M 1898 Rast Gasser revolver and both will allow the cylinder to rotate forward and it doesn't lock until just before the hammer falls in double action or when the hammer is cocked in single action. I'm guessing this in normal but seems a little strange. Is or was this common?

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." C.S. Lewis
