Security Six cylinder bind problem
I have a stainless steel Security Six that I picked up used. When I first got it, the trigger was a little stiff sometimes and originally I thought the problem was a warn pawl. I replaced that as well as the ejector rod which was really chewed up on the end. Those replacements clarified the real cause of the problem: the cylinder drags on the forcing cone on two of the charge holes with just a very moderate fouling - say after 12-20 shots of IDPA power level .38s.
So my questions are these:
1) I live about 30 minutes north of St. Louis on the IL side. Can a general gunsmith, as opposed to a Ruger specialist, deal with this cylinder gap problem?
2) If no, can you recommend a Ruger specialist who can do the work?
3) Based on the information above, can anyone give me a rough idea of what a fair price for the work would be?
