Carry Six

After modifying the hammer on my Colt clone to a solid design I sought a method to safely carry six rounds.

Taking a cue from the old Manhattan Revolvers I cut a safety notch on the cylinder. It turned out pretty well and the cylinder locks up tight in the safety position. Unlike the Manhattan, however, I only cut one notch as opposed to the six they used.

Cylinder was first marked with dental pick to ensure proper location of notch.

The notch was cut free-hand with a Dremel tool, small drill and milling bits, mini files and a small sharpened screw driver used as a finishing tool. Cylinder was re-blued with chemical bluing agent after modification.
