    Loose Peacemaker.22

    I recently purchased a used Peacemaker22. (No magnum cylinder, just a long rifle.) Here is my concern: the cylinder/barrel gap is .011, endshake is .006-.007(!!!), and there is more lateral movement in the cylinder than I would like. (yes, I probably should not have purchased it, but I did.) As I stated, it is used, BUT IT IS NOT "WORN OUT", at least it does not have that "worn out" look to it. So I have to wonder, did Colt make these revolvers a bit looser than normal? Maybe to conter the effects of rimfire fouling. After all this is a "fun gun" not a target gun. Maybe I just got a lemon, or maybe it is wore-the-hell-out after all. Does anyone else's Scout/Peacemaker.22s have this much play in it. THANKS.

    It may be refinished.
    As to your question I can't see any way for a .22 (lr or mag) to shoot itself loose, but your's sound like a trip to the Doc is required.
