Trouble with C&B Dragoon

I have a Replica Arms 2nd Model Dragoon by Uberti. It functions well until the trigger is pulled. Then the cylinder lock jumps out of the cylinder lock notches and the cylinder turns slighly before the hammer hits the ege of the notch cut out for the nipples. I bought a new cylinder stop and it does not fit. Should I check how much the bolt stop sticks above the frame? I have replaced a broken sear spring and I have the bolt stop part of the spring exerting a lot of pressure on the bolt stop. What would be my next step? Can I safely grind off the top of the bolt stop leg and allow the bolt stop to rise higher out of the frame?

you might have better luck in the black powder section. lots of tinkering goes on over there, somebody may have had your same problem.

VTI Replica Gun Parts in Connecticut is some sort of official Uberti off-shoot. They have a gunsmith in NY state (they are near the CT/NY state line) who does repairs. I'd suggest contacting VTI.

Uberti has a good repair service. Just call them they issue a work order number etc. The last Dragoon I sent in was turned around in 8 days.
