Being as I'm the gun-guy in my circle I was brought a 29-2 S&W .44 Mag. During it's "cleaning"/reason for being dumped in my lap someone has lost the Hand spring. He's ordered a new one but since I didn't get to take it out, I'm wondering before I mess with it, how does it fit properly in place? Also it has another issue. you have to smack the cylinder open. This being the reason for it's "cleaning" previously. He could barely get the cylinder to swing out on it. I took out the pin for the locking bolt and with it removed the cylinder swings open just easy as can be. Upon inspection though I can't really see any burrs or anything stopping it from moving to cause it to be so difficult to open. Any ideas on this?
