    32 charter arms undercoverette,. revover only 80 rounds on it.can pop back with finger,feels like a newly sharpened scizzor n just catching an edge. the spot is before hammer release when cocked back,pulling trigger feel nothing,supposebly trigger spring, but why 5th shot, i think its either the dohicky that rotates the tumbler or the do hickey from underneath, dont feel like shipping all the way to factory, im handy is it dissasembleable thx

    If it is always every 5th shot, then is likely the star (rachet on the rear of cylinder- or the cylinder lock/notches. This affects the timing of a revolver (having cartridge lined up with barrel) Other than seeing parts are lubed, I would not fool with it- takes some skill to do this right, AND you can wave bu-bye to any warranty.

    my first suspicion as well would be the ratchets on the extractor star....
    I strongly suspect one of them is not cut right, leading to the issue you describe....
