"Frankly, S&W revolvers are easy enough to detail strip….or mostly detail strip. You can learn it. Lots of tips online. Ask me when you struggle, I’ll help. You will need some tools."

I agree. My dislike of the more recent models is not the appearance of the locking hole but the ruination of S&W's beautiful lockworks. I have a few Rugers including Security Six and GP100's and while these operate well I hate working on them. I'm sorry Ruger, I don't like having to buy a special tool to take apart the cylinder and, YES, they do get dirty down at the bottom of the cylinder. While the GP100 may be more sturdy, I prefer the older "six" models.

Yeah, I have the case lube.

I drove by a sign that read, "Remember... Only YOU can prevent forest fires." It made me wonder why I was the chosen one.
