Got my 45 bisley Accusport yesterday-great looking handgun.
Question is , in full lock up how much play should there be in the
cylinder rotation? My S&W 29-44mag there is none like welded
to the frame.All my other revolvers there is play
but this seems like its on the edge of excessive, also the trigger
is a hair trigger and as you release after pulling it I can hear
and feel something going on or a dragging type feeling
with a bit of noise to it. The frame screws are buggered,
makes me wonder..
Thanks-Ron

Yep Wonder, buggered screws, and light trigger, hmmmm sounds like a little homeboy gunsmithin.
As for the cylinder rotation, Rugers do have a little "slop" and don't lockup as tight as a Colt. Might want to have the Cylinder Latch looked at, and if you want it to lockup tight you can have a power custom cylinder latch fitted.
As for the dragin feeling that would be the transfer bar droping down when you let up on the the trigger. Cock the gun, Pull and HOLD the trigger and then look for the tip of the firing pin, see it? now let up on the trigger and wala it's gone, transfer bar droped down.
Ok do it again it's amusing and its raining in Philly.

No big deal, find a good single action gunsmith and have him go thru it and tune it up. You have no where abouts in your profile so can't help with a local suggestion. It can all be fixed and made "Mo Better"

Just a Suggestion:
You might want to try and fix the buggered ones, It's real easy to chuck them up in a drill motor and give them a spin with a file, your wife nail board, ect.. just go easy. Stainless is stainless, on finish.
