2 revolver questions

The screw on the cylinder release button on my 629 has come loose twice now, and the same thing happens to my 29 as well. Is there a certain type of locktite or something I can put on the screw that will keep it tight, but not be so tight that I won't be able to remove it ever again?

Also, my 629 feels like it drags or something sometimes when you pull the hammer back. It only does it on one or two chambers I think, but there's definitely times when it requires more effort to cock the trigger. Any ideas on what could be wrong with it?

I bought this gun new too, and haven't put a whole lot of rounds through it yet, and no hot loads either.

Just a tiny drop on the degreased thread will do ya.


Clean under the extractor star real good with a toothbrush as a speck of unburned powder under there will cause hard rotation.
