It is an unpleasant news who booked the revolver with full amount. Because at the time of delivery, they have to pay the extra increased amount by Demand Draft. According to vjha55, they will get the same old revolver though they booked the revolver with full consideration amount.

Look it is like this--------- any booking now will be with new price, for which collection date will be after 1st april. Booking done already will not be affected by this hike.

Hi,
Imported ammo is available in the Mkt right now I think the MAG TECK (brazil) ammo if fresh is good but don't go for LAPUA (WADCUTTER) ammo as if the allingment (Timing) of the chamber of your revolver differs then the lead will some times strikes on the side edge of the revolver in between the gap of the chamber & the barrel resulting injuries to the perople standing beside you even to your eyes, face or hand. I have on 5 or 6 such occasions have heard people discussing about the problems faced by firing WADCUTTER ammos.

Hock this is called Lead shaving and it is due to The cylinder lock up is late and the chamber is not aligned with the forcing cone so bullet got shaved from side. AFAIK All revolvers, even new, shave a bit of lead. but this is not associated with any specific type of bullet and if a revolver is out of timing it will shave even jacketed bullets, while you have mentioned that it is observed with Wad cutters only. got the timing of your revolver fixed and then would you please tell that it still do so with wadcutters.

Rustam: By replacing it with a barrel that is actually rifled. Cheers.

If a .32 S&W caliber revolver were to lose accuracy after firing 150 rounds, I'd ckeck the bore. If the barrels indeed have the machining marks described, that many rounds would be more than enough to cause leading of the barrel, with accuracy going to hell.

Unfortunately, that is not what they did. I happened to see this particular revolver and its bore at the range.

Rustam: The plot thickens. A revolver with unrifled bore was received, and then repaired within two to three hours? With a regular production line you certainly wouldn't want to stop the line and put that barrel back through the rifling process, interrupting the production. For one thing, clamping would mar the finish. From the de.scription of the bore condition of other IOF revolvers I think we can rule out a button rifling process. Hammer-forged rifling is not possible with the non-symmetrical shape of the barrel. Which leaves cut rifling, either by single cutter, or by broach. But broach rifling cannot be done by hand, requiring powerful machinery. Broach rifling cuts all the grooves to full depth with a single pass of the tool, and is quick. Disassembling the gun, setting up and single-cut rifling the barrel, then re-assembling in less than three hours, would pretty much mean the guy is sitting there waiting for this job. All in all, pretty remarkable turnaround. And you guys keep bashing them! Really curious now. Cheers.

TwoRivers,

I will get the owner to put up a pic of the rifling. From what I recall it looked very unusual - unevenly spaced, if I recall correctly.

Rusty
If the revolver is under warranty,it can be sent back to Kanpur for a replacement
if not that atleast they can replace just the barrel.

Sanjay

The revolver is only a few months old but I don't think 'opensight' could be bothered with going through the hassle. He is a surgeon and does not have much free time.

He did ask for a replacement at the factory itself but was refused point blank.

That would be interesting, to see what the inside of that barrel looks like. Cheers.
