Zullo, the repair invoice, [no charge by the way] was "Cylinder replaced, timing corrected" I think the bolt was replaced as well. Never-the-less, the problem as never repeated. Of course, I don't sit around dry firing since I converted it. I also am 22 years older and know better how to handle firearms. I hate 'cylinder turn rings, and I avoid functioning a revolver unless I'm Firing it, or reloading it. "WITH AGE COMES WISDOM". Thanks for the info. By the way, I dry fired that poor thing hundreds of times, together with my brothers and friends. We used to think we were "Wyatt EARP". No such problem anymore, as I learned respect for firearms years ago.
