    I'm so sorry, Ole Fluffer, that I provided MORE information than was asked for. I'd hate for somebody to actually learn something. Now he knows how and why cylinder rings are formed, or not formed, on every type of revolver on the market. Of course, that's usually what happens when you learn from books or anything other than the internet. I'd rather provide too much than not enough. More is better. :rolleyes:

    The problem is not necessarily with the OP but with all the responses stating that "all revolvers get rings so get over it". As seen in posts 7, 18, 23, 46 and 47.

    When I realized my GP100 and LCR were both showing signs of a ring on the cylinder, I got majorly depressed for 5 long seconds. Then I put them in the bag and took them to the range for more shooting. :D


    If it's purely a cosmetic by-product of normal operation, it doesn't bother me at all. Maybe Ruger and others should start laser-etching a ring on the cylinder right from the factory, then it'll be a moot point.

    I get that after reading your previous posts but was not aware that single actions didn't have this issue. I've only owned one single action pistol in my life and I hardly fired it so I'm far from an expert on them. I just don't like the dated action that requires you to cock the hammer on every shot so my safe is loaded with DA/SA revolvers.
