    End shake tolerances

    I have read several postings lately about end shake. I have 2, 3rd gen SAA. One 357 And the other 44 special. I went and bought needle gauges since both are1980 productions. The 357 has a .003 gap and the 44 is .004. Since I only shoot cowboy loads should I be concerned? I have read that gaps over .002 need attention. The guns are beautiful and do not appear to have other quality issues. The guns are new and I may only shoot 200 rounds a year. Is this really an issue and if so what route do I take to correct it. I value what I read on this forum over all others. Thanks

    Do you refer to the difference in the gap between the end of the barrel and the front of the cylinder held completly to the rear and front of cylinder when held forward or you refering only to the gap between the back of the barrel and front of cylinder when held to the rear?

    I measured from the front of the cylinder to the forcing cone with the cylinder pulled back. From previous post on the Colt Single action forum, I measured wrong.
