On the Hopkins and Allen, the cylinder will only lock up when the hammer is in the full cock position in single action or at a certain point when the trigger is pulled in trigger/double action. Other wise as Mike Irwin posted, it is free wheeling. These were not Colts or S&W and only sold for about $1.78 through catalogs. To recap, if the hammer is cocked and the cylinder is free spining, yes it it is broken. if the hammer is down at rest and the cylinder is free spining, no it is not broken
