Tight cylinder also
<Quote> I know mine doesn't. I assumed it was the way the gun was designed, but maybe I'm wrong about that.
I'm just curious whether you actually have a problem at all. I'd love feedback from other Ruger *-Six owners.
Just picked up my new to me security six from my FFL, who is also my gunsmith. His comment: gun is in good condition overall but the cylinder is pretty tight. He did not follow up with anything like, "this is normal for this model," so I understood him to mean that the cylinder needed a good cleaning in order to spin (more?) freely. I didn't think to have him do it while I was there - I was planning on using the spray cleaner. So, my experience so far: very tight cylinder on an otherwise gently used weapon.
