Default Ruger Double Action Revolvers Quiz!

Ruger Double Action Revolvers Quiz!

I am semi-retired and I am taking a self-passed and self-taught Armorers course and now I am on the Ruger Double Action Revolvers. I hope to become a part-time light Gunsmith in the near future.

There are over 60 quiz questions covering this firearm and I have answered most of them hopefully correctly but during my study and research I am having some problems related to some of the following quiz questions. I have conflicting answers.

Can you help me determine the correct answers for these few quiz questions? Please correct my wrong answers!

Thanks for your help.

Note #17. The revolver could fire without the transfer bar by simply pulling the trigger. True or false

Note #18. The spring and plunger for the cylinder stop (cylinder latch) spring loads the cylinder stop (cylinder latch)
a) up
b) down

Note #19. The crane has two balls that retain the cylinder. True or false

Note #20. The center pin system utilizes a
a) right hand thread
b) left hand thread

Note #21. The trigger is also the sear. True or false

Note #22. The hand (pawl) is not spring loaded. True or false

Note #23. The cylinder must go into the frame before the trigger guard assembly. True or false

Note #24. What is the slave pin that is supplied by Ruger used for?
a) To captivate the mainspring
b) To install the trigger
c) To take off the front sight

The only note I might be able to help you with is #17, regarding the transfer bar. Most of my hands on Ruger experience is with their single actions, but I have handled a Redhawk or two. I am in no way an expert, or a gunsmith, so please pardon my lack of appropriate vocabulary.

If the hammer were to fall and fail to contact the transfer bar, which is hypothetically absent, then the hammer would come to rest on the frame, millimeters away from the firing pin. If the hammer were to fall and contact the transfer bar, via the shelf on the hammer, it would do so before coming to rest on the frame, allowing the transfer bar to actuate the firing pin. Simply put, my most educated GUESS would be that no, you would not be able to fire the revolver by pressing the trigger when the transfer is absent.
