The new guns don't hold a candle to the old ones. The new guns will function but the aren't of the same quality. As for the lock, who cares? I have three and the lock has never been a problem. Timing was off on one, extractor screwed up on one, burr in the forcing cone on the other. I have another made after they stopped pinning the bbls, it shoots ok but plates lead on the cylinder, took it for repair, still plates lead. Find an old gun that is pinned, you'll have a better chance of getting a good gun. Almost forgot, I also bought a new Model 24 in the 80's, sent it back 3 times, finally traded it off.
