Default SAA timing

I got a SAA 45 clone (Pietta) It's unfired. in examining it I see that the cylinder indexing if off a little, when I shine a light down the barrel I can see a slight sliver of the cylinder face on one side of each of the six cylinders, maybe 1/32 of an inch at it's thickest. The action cycles fine and it locks up tight upon cocking. I have two spare cylinders that came with the gun and each has the same problem when installed in the gun. the cylinder locking bolt fits in the frame fine and has no play or looseness. I got this used so returning it is not an option. Is this something that can be adjusted?
