Don't forget....

If you load using the loading lever, you put a lot of stress on the frame during the loading process. On a Colt all of that stress is focused as tension on the arbor/frame union.


Loosening of the arbor is not the only damage to the frame to be considered. In addition you have the cylinder impressions on the recoil shield.
