I have never had a chainfire, but a friend once owned a 51 Navy (original) in which the nipples were so badly worn that firing would sometimes cause the hammer to blow back far enough to rotate the cylinder and then fall to fire the next chamber. He was going to try to get the hole the right size to have a fully automatic 51 Navy, but I persuaded him to replace the nipples.
