CharlieG,

You can also lock the cylinder to fully cocked and hold the rear towards daylight or use a flashlite or Oil lantern from the side or at barrel and chamber. And look down the barrel to see if the cone flash hole is centered in each chamber, if there's a cresent of a moon showin' you may have a problem. Sometimes only one chamber can be off. I'm sure yours is fine but thought you'd like the method.
