Dear Gents,

It's like a voodoo thing.
Reading about a Diamondback spitting led from the side, next thing you know you're experiencing it in real life and I can say it really @#$$%^%^!

I took my .22 cal. baby apart and noticed that the hand doesn't allign properly next to the frame, its about 1 millimeter of.

Is this normal or the cause of my problems?

I also would like to know if anyone outside the USA ever shipped his or her Colt back to the factory and if that caused any problems with customs etc.

Many thanks for your expert advice in advance!

Gunsmoke.

I'm not sure by what you mean "misaligned from the frame".

The hand should have a VERY slight bend inward, and typically will not ride flush against the frame.

For repairs, I'd suggest talking to Colt.
Either they will know a Factory-rated repair service where you live, OR they will know exactly how to ship the gun to them for repairs, without problems with Customs.

So the hand should -so to speak- point slightly towards the cylinder-lock-up?

I think dfariswheel is saying toward the centerline of the gun, away from the left side of the frame.
If the hand is worn at the tip it could cause the problem you described of timing.

Then there's my problem for you.

The hand points outward.

Definetly time to give Colt a call.

Thanks, gents.
