I am new to the forum, but I am hoping I that I might be able to get some help on a Python Elite that belonged to my father. The firearm was purchased about 2000 and hasn't had too many rounds put through it (maybe a few hundred). The lock up seems perfect and I have no other issues, however after reading on this forum that the cylinder gap should be no more that .008" and the total end shake .003" i decided to get a set of feeler gauges and measure. I find that the gap ends up varying depending on the chamber from .008" to .010" and the resulting end shake from .002" to .004". Any thoughts on why it would be out of spec, and what are my options with this firearm? I hadn't planned to shoot it a lot, but I hate the idea of not being able to shoot it at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
