I bought a 1877 Lightning and while it works perfectly in single and double action I have a problem with the Cylinder pin. To remove the cylinder, you depress the cylinder pin lock screw and pull out the Cylinder Pin. It's stuck, first I depressed the cylinder pin lock screw and pulled on the Cylinder Pin and nothing. I removed the entire cylinder pin assembly and pulled on the Cylinder Pin and no movement at all. From the looks of he gnarled end of the Cylinder Pin shown tool marks the previous owner had issues he failed to tell me about. Any suggestions. Cylinder rotates just fine, all else works great.


Delete....Wraping a pair of grips with some leather. a little pulling then some 600 emery paper and a little polishing did the trick....
