IIRC, Brownells sells S&W hands that are thicker than normal and should solve the problem described. Peening the hand was common with the old Colt DA revolvers because the second level of the hand acted to bring the cylinder into full lockup by pushing directly on the ratchet tooth. But in an S&W the hand moves the cylinder and then moves up PAST the ratchet tooth so peening the hand won't help much if at all.
