    The little retention part that holds the cylinder in place on my H&R 999 broke, so the cylinder comes right out if you open the action too fast, and can be removed by hand with no resistance whatsoever.

    I plan on getting this fixed, but I was curious if it was still safe to shoot. Any idears?

    I have a topbreak that does the same thing. If it's snapped shut, it'll shoot fine.

    I believe that this is common with the 3rd generation model of this revolver. I have both a 1st and 3rd generation "999" and the older model's cylinder does not come out freely, while the 3rd will come right out if you are not careful.

    Alright, thanks. I figured it'd be fine since once the action is shut the cylinder retention system (I dunno what it's really called) isn't needed. Just wanted to make sure.
