Just recently acquired a 6.5" stainless Single Six in 17HMR and noticed gap appeared a bit wide so I decided to measure it.

Cylinder to the rear, hammer down .009, .010 No go

Cylinder forward, Hammer down .008, .009 No go

This seems to be on the high side, thoughts?

For comparison, my GF's SP101 .357 is: .002-.005

Should I be concerned that this is on the high end of the spec..or are rimfires generally made a little looser?
