Ruger Vaquero - cylinder revolves freely

The cylinder of my cowboy ruger revolves freely, even when the dog is armed; When the gun is engaged, the camera is aligned with the barrel, but with any movement, the drum rotates freely. How to solve this problem? It's a 44 Magnum Vaquero, I only shot it once

Welcome to the forum.
Have you've done a complete cleaning with solvents ? Sounds like the cylinder stop is not coming up fully into the cylinder stop notches. It's not correct if the cylinder rotates while the hammer is at full cock.

Você já fez uma limpeza completa com solventes? Soa como o batente do cilindro não está chegando completamente nos entalhes do batente do cilindro. Não é correto se o cilindro gira enquanto o martelo está na torneira completa.
