A drag line "around" the cylinder is the result of the bolt not retracting far enough to completely clear the cylinder. Lowering the hammer on the safety pins will not cause a drag line if done properly. With the hammer still in half cock line up a pin in the hammer notch then lower the hammer. The bolt will rise and be against the cylinder but when you cock the pistol the bolt will have retracted before the hand picks up the ratchet to start revolving the cylinder.
