My cousin shot (I believe) two of them loose. Some major part (welded bracket?) that holds them together so he switched to a different gun. I can't remember what he went to. I love mine. He was shooting in about 3 shoots each month on a pretty steady basis. He claims they don't hold up to heavy use. YMMV as has mine but I could only wish to shoot in 3 matches a month.
With over 15 perCUSSIN' revolvers, I've been called the Imelda Marcos of cap & ball.
