Hi Crunchy,

I was taught that with Vaqueros or Blackhawks, if you close the loading gate and then rotate the cylinder, then the cylinder stop (or whatever that little locking notch is called) will drag against the cylinder and that's how you get those drag line scratches on the cylinder between the notches.

If you close the loading gate and cock the hammer, the cylinder stop retracts, the cylinder rotates, you can safely ease the hammer down on the empty chamber using the trigger and nothing scrapes against the cylinder.

Have you found that to NOT be the case if you just rotate the cylinder until it stops???

Regards,
Mike
