What is a free spinning revolver cylinder?
Thank you James Condor
Blog Administrator -I have included my own video of a Free Spinning Cylinder on my Ruger Vaquero Birdshead 45LC Cowboy Revolver.
A free spinning cylinder is an upgrade to the standard cowboy single action revolver whereby the cylinder turns on each cartridge every time you pull the hammer back; or when opening the 'Loading Gate' and placing the hammer in a half cock position and moving the cylinder one turn to the right (clockwise). Ruger Cowboy Revolvers do not need to have the hammer pulled back for this action. The FREE Spinning cylinder modifies the internal mechanism of the revolver allowing it to spin freely in either direction (clockwise or counterclockwise) when the 'Loading Gate' is open.
Note: The free spinning cylinder plus a trigger action enhancement (known as a trigger job) plus the honing [porting of the cylinder chambers and barrel breach port is known as a 'Cowboy Action Job']. Most cowboy shooters have had their revolvers modified with a complete action job as I have had on my Ruger Vaquero Birds Head 45 Long Colt (LC) Cowboy Revolver.
Important: This upgrade should be performed by a qualified gunsmith.
