Thanks youse guys. Doc Hoy more clearly explained exactly what I was trying to convey in my earlier posts. I did check the timing and it is dead on so firing should not be an issue. Since it is a Euroarms piece and it's date code XX9 pegs it at 33 to 34 years old I would surmise returning it to the mfg. is not feasible. I do not plan to carry it and at the range I will probably load 5. Anyhoo now you fellas can check any new acquisitions and take whatever steps you feel necessary. I do think it is a safety issue to a certain extent but remember most revolvers have no safety notchs at all.
Happy New Year to one and all.
