Okay, all done. Here is a before pic and a couple of after pics. I am very happy I decided to do this myself, with encouragement and tips from you guys.









I also decided to video it, as I couldn't find anything on YouTube when I was first thinking of doing this. Maybe my video will encourage others to do this themselves.

Sheepdog8117, Geeze ... I'm getting forgetful. I posted a "how to do" in the Forum Library back in Dec of 2011. It is titled DA Revolver Chamber Chamfering ... here's a link: http://rugerforum.net/library/44767-...hamfering.html

Just a tip ... I use spent (not resized) cases instead of new ammo because the spent cases are expanded and hold the extractor in position better. That said, it looks like you did an excellent job on the S&W cylinder.

Dang it!!! I searched YouTube but couldn't find anything on it actually being done.

I'm sure your video is better than mine. I'll check it out later. I'm about to head out and meet a buddy to shoot a box or two.

Sheepdog8117, My post is not a video .... it's just a text document but it does have pictures.

Nice write up!!

The pic with the live rounds is an after pic. I used spent shells during the work. :-)

Thanks Yeti! I shot 150 rounds through it yesterday. I showed my friend with the SP101, now he wants to try it on his. :-)
