    I posted this in the Ruger specific forum but didnt get any responses...

    Hopefully some one here will be able to help me out...

    I picked up a new to me speed six 2.75" and it looks like it has a little issue. When I pull the trigger, the cylinder rotates counterclockwise as its suppose to. Everything seems to line up fine but I can almost freely spin the cylinder by hand clockwise. I have two others, speed six and a service six and neither one exhibit this behavior. Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Thanks in advance!

    Sounds like for whatever reason the locking bolt isn't dropping all the way into the cylinder cuts.

    I'd start out by taking the trigger group out of the frame & giving it a real good cleaning & lube job.

    Might just be old dirt & dried oil binding up the bolt travel.
    While you have it a part, look for anything worn, weak, or binding.

    Anyway, that's always the first step to solving any gun problem.

    Here is an Owners Manual with instructions to dissemble it:

    Here's another good tip- Call or write (email) Ruger and request an owner's book on your gun. They send it to you for FREE. Have your serial number handy. BTW- this is true with every gun you own. :)

    Are you holding the trigger in a position short of full stroke when you do this?
