Default Revolver Rattle

I have a friend that just bought his wife a Ruger LCR, in 38 SPL +P. They're wondering if it's supposed to rattle. When given a shake, or tipped from L to R, you can hear it. He says it's pretty noticeable.

What do ya think?

Just checked mine and yes, there is a little rattle. My LCR works great and I am not going to worry about it. I just won't go around shaking it!

How new is it? The gun in question is brand new, as of last Sat. I'm not really a revolver guy, so I don't know. Although, I would imagine like anything else, that there would have to be a certain amount of play, in order for it to work smoothly.

Does it rattle with the trigger pulled. Hard to tell on internal hammer guns. Easy for external hammer guns.

Its ok to have a little slop so long as it locks up tight as the cylinder spins into firing position as the hammer releases.

If yours is the interal hammer lcr contact ruger. External you can check it yourself.

This kind of rattle is common in the LCRs. Ruger states it is innocent. It from the transfer bar.

So, when the "Check Engine Light" comes on in your car, is the solution to put a piece of black tape over it?

Only when I shake my Jeep.

Exactly. As I understand it, most modern revolvers will have a little rattle sound when shaken. This is the transfer bar. It is supposed to be slightly loose.

Unless you think the rattle is from the cylinder. There should be a little play, but it (the cylinder) shouldn't be audible.

Nope. The proper way is to remove the bulb.
