I'll soon be sending my newly acquired '67 Python to Colt to have the timing fixed as well as a reblueing and possible action job. I have a question about the cylinder though for you gunsmiths or those more knowledgeable than I about firearms. Apparently at some point in time the cylinder was dragging across the forcing cone and wore some small marks of the blueing off where this happened on the face of the cylinder. When I slow cock the gun unloaded and observe the cylinder gap there seems to be a point where light doesn't shine through until the gun reaches full lockup. Done with a feeler guage the cylinder spins without binding with the .003" through the .005" guages. By the .006" guage the cylinder quits turning. There is minimal endshake, probably a normal amount for a gun that's been fired at all and the headspacing seems fine. Last week I fired a box of 38 special JHPs through the gun with no problems at all and there was no further marks to the face of the cylinder, this I could tell because the powder fouling was undisturbed. At any rate, is this someting that Colts gunsmiths will be able to address and straighten out without it's needing major surgery? Also, with the Colt action job, is this going to limit me to shooting only 38 special wadcutters like the old Custom shop tune or will I be able to reliably fire 357s as well? Thanks for any tips or advice and sorry for the long posting.
