    When the cylinder is open or closed I notice wiggle on the extractor rod, is that okay?

    Edit: It's a S&W 15-3

    Is it OK? Yes, but to what degree makes a huge difference. Is it desirable? No, just acceptable.

    My nearly new Model 15-3 has no play with the cylinder closed. My K-38 with a lot more rounds through it, has some play. The play in the K-38 does not affect it's accuracy.

    bg226,

    There are a number of makes of revolver on the market and the ejector rod plays a dual role in some and a single role in others.

    If your revolver is a double action Ruger then the ejector rod is ONLY an ejector rod and is loose by design. Many other revolver designs use the ejector rod as a second lockup point. In these designs, the ejector rod shouldn't show much play.
