The owner was shooting Black Hills Arms factory "Cowboy" loads, on about the 18th round two of the chambers came apart! split the cylinder from front to back where the bolt lock cuts were made.......these cuts were so deep that the metal at the point of rupture looked like foil........ the case in the chamber under the hammer was loose in the chamber and the primer was no different in appearance than the others in the cylinder....no pressure signs at all.....except the top of two chambers lying about three feet away on the concrete. I don't know if all these revolvers are subject to the same problem....but if you have one.......be cautious and wear protection.........the next one that blows may just hurt someone!
