H&R 999

I have an H&R 999 that works good except for a couple of problems. The barrel latch on the top of the revolver works loose after firing a couple of rounds and has to be pushed back into place each time. The second problem is that the cylinder comes off the shaft when extracting empty rounds. I push it back on the shaft, turn it, and it locks back into position. I'm sure these problems are due to a couple of worn parts. Has anybody ever had these problems and which parts need to be replaced?

Broken, or missing latch spring/plunger. The latch should have stiff downward pressure on it.
Gunpowder residue can build up in the cylinder latch area causing it to detach, or you may have a broken latch.
Hope this helps. My 999 is one of my favorite shooters.
