Had a problem with my 1849 clone not locking up and thanks to a member at THR, I checked the hole the bolt goes through and found rough milling and a bur on the inside of the frame and after some polishing and light sanding it now locks up tight. Always check for the easy fix before investing in parts. Also check that bolt tip fits in notches of cylinder and adjust if not a fit, remove metal from the side that doesn't stop at the sharp end of the cylinder notch as you'll increase side to side play.
