    Had a few wheelguns, ( like 3) in my life. I have successfully had them apart and back together but I still might use terms like doohickey and thingamajig.

    How much wiggle is too much for a cylinder stop? I have a true beater of a .38 caliber Taurus model 82 as a plaything and test subject. I did not like the slop in in the lockup so I replaced the cylinder stop. It's better but all I have to compare it to is a fairly new SP101 which locks up like a vault. The stop grooves (this is where my terminology lacks) in the cylinder show a little wear, maybe some peening, so maybe I can improve that with a new(er) cylinder. Of course those (blued) are out of stock at Numrich, they do show a stainless one available. It's probably worth more than the whole gun. I did see a used cylinder, ejector, and yoke assembly on ebay for $105 that might be the right vintage but I really can't tell if it's any better than what I have.

    You’re entering a different world if you start swapping cylinders.
    Better off to just get a good used unmodified revolver
