Dan Wesson .357 help

    Friend of mine has a Dan Wesson .357. Don't know the model, but it's similar to his S&W 357, and my Taurus. The difference is that where the other 2 guns have a small screw on the right side of the frame that frees the bridge group for cleaning, the Dan Wesson has 2 rivets or pins. It seems to me that pushing out dowel pins is a lot of work to get at the cylinder for cleaning. Is there a "secret handshake" involved here?

    NO!!! DON'T TOUCH THAT PUNCH ... :eek:

    1. Remove the barrel and shroud assembly.

    2. Remove the slideplate screws.

    3. Gently pop off the sideplate.

    4. At the front a small "C" ring will be found in a groove in the yoke. Lift it out.

    5. Unlatch the cylinder and pull it forward.

    6. Reassemble in reverse order.
