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?

Many thanks,
pastorcurtis

Don't know if you have the same problem I have or not. Here's mine. I came across a Smith and Wesson Model k-22, the precursor to the Model 17. It's in .22lr and was made in 1957. More accurate than my 63 year old eyes, but every now and then in single action mode only, the whole gun hangs up. I try to thumb cock it and the trigger only comes back about half way. Anyway the folks on the S&W forum say it's cylinder end slop. Cylinder scrapes against forcing cone and she stop. Never has happened in double action. Back to it, they say to go to the Brownell web site and order spacers in the .001 range and add them to the cylinder crane until you get the specified gap between the cylinder and the forcing cone. Still not convinced, just thought that might help you out.
