    I was shooting my black hawk yesterday andwas using the 45acp cylinder
    I went to switch to the lc cylinder and the pin that holds the cylinder in came out easy but won't go back in I mean not an inch.
    I've had this gun for 10 years no problems anybody have any advice?

    Look at the flange on the base pin near the grasping end.

    I believe there might be a small semi-circle cut on the flange that must be aligned with the barrel curve or it won't go back in. It will be cocked sideways and bind up.

    It actually locks the pin from turning with the cylinder and wearing out the holes in the frame.

    If you must get a replacement, you might want to consider getting a Belt Mountain pin. They come oversize to minimize the "slop" between the cylinder, frame, and pin.
