I just purchased a Uberti 1858 Army That seems well finished and seemed to opperate okay although the bolt was hitting a little hard in the cylinder lead just before it enters it's notch. When cleaning the shipping oil from the gun I went to remove the cylinder and it was not comming out very easy. I started checking things out and the pawl or hand whatever you choose to call it protrudes beyond it's window when at half cock. I've worked on Colts and Rugers but never any 1858's. Any hints or instructions would be appreciated.
You can push the pawl back and the reinserting the Cylinder becomes simple. Also the cylinder rotates fine when the gun is all together and on half cock.
