This poll is interesting .... Around 56% either do not or very rarely take the revolver apart. Interesting. Does that tell us, that when you go to a gun show that over 50% of the revolvers haven't ever been disassembled for a proper cleaning? Ouch! Just last weekend, I took down my 'new' New Vaquero to its base pieces. Had bought it on previous Thursday. Cleaned the factory oil off all the pieces. Checked for burrs, did some smoothing here and there with a ultra-fine stone, re-oiled and put back together. Now I am confident that everything is as it should be inside... It will come apart again soon when I get some Wolff springs for it.... I am surprised at the number of folks that just 'shoot' 'em!
