    I recently bought a used S&W Model 66-2. The gun seems to be in excellent condition, but I have a question about it's function. When I slowly pull the trigger, I hear one click, but not a a second click. I think this second click indicates that the cylinder is locked in place. In "Trigger Job," Jerry Miculek states you should hear this second click. Is this a problem? I have not shot the gun yet to test it's function. Thank you for any replies.

    2nd click is really quiet on my 65, but present. At faster speeds, the cylinder rotates and locks in place faster, and the click is louder.

    my 66 clicks a little louder, but neither is as loud or predictable as my 640. The 66 and 65 are older, P&R guns.

    Try rotating the cylinder slightly. The revolver may be slightly out of time, but don't worry as a vast majority of them are that way. Before the hammer falls it will be pushed up into the lock position.

    Both clicks are present but very quiet in my 66-2. Of course after 50++ years of shooting (with no ear protection in the early years) and 35 yrs as a pipefitter in a noisy rubber and chemical factory I can't hear myself--- ,well y'all know what I mean.:p
