    Im thinking I got a couple of cylinders that were the last ones on the cutters, and the chambers were tight.

    The 9mms that wouldnt chamber in the Ruger, easily chambered in my 9mm autos.

    For reliability a lot of auto chambers are
    rather generous in their specs. While a
    9mm is technically supposed to headspace
    on its mouth, the truth is the extractor in an
    auto does most of the work in keeping the
    round in a position to fire. Minor casing
    length variations or brass thickness are not so much
    as issue.

    Install (or have installed) a free spin pawl.

    I put one in my 44 SBH, and really appreciate being able to back up the cyl since I seem to miss the chamber half the time when trying to dump cases.

    My rods a little short also, 44 Mags will sometimes hang up a little unless I run the rod kinda energetically.

    Nice looking gun and you shoot pretty good with it to boot. In my case the lanyard rig would go away.

    Doubleh, thanks for the compliment. I like the lanyard ring because it matches my Glock 19X. I like to think this gun would be considered the 19X of the Cowboy days.

    I think the lanyard ring is a good idea, especially on a working gun, or any gun you use in activities that you tend to lose anything that isnt dummy corded to you.

    In the past, Ruger would not fit an auxiliary cylinder to a revolver that had not been produced that way, at least officially. I have heard that sometimes if you could talk to the right person, it could get done. Have they changed their policy? I have a stainless .357 New Vaquero I would not mind having an added 9mm cylinder.

    The Ruger policy is if they make convertibles they will fit retrofit cylinders for a model that is in that line.

    Thanks, wgf. I have a Lipsey's blued 357/9mm convertible, 4 5/8. I didn’t know they would add a cylinder to a stainless because I didn’t know they had ever offered it. Good to know.
