    Default RG IND. Model RG 31 38 special sear problem

    Not too long ago I posted a thread explaining a problem I thought my 38 was having, well I finally took it apart and found the culprate. The sear that holds the cylinder in place after a cycle is worn on the top and is not grabbing like it should. I took it out from the frame and looked at it closely and discovered where the metal was grinded away so ya, I think it needs a new sear.

    Anyways I decided to take this apart after I realized the cylinder would sit between cycles after I would pull the hammer back fast or even during double action cycling. I having been dryfiring it, I was just tinkering with it today because I was thinking of taking it to the range for a first run of test firing but Im not doing that untill I get this replaced. The cylinder would actually spin the groove on it past the sear and would not lock into place, which during live fire shooting would cause it to skip live rounds and I would have to constantly turn the cylinder by hand to correct it, not something I want to do if I should have to protect myself in a life or death situation.

    I just need to know are these sears for revolver cylinders(or w/e the correct term for them are) propriatary or would there be another model sear I could use for my model? If someone could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it greatly, I need this revolver to work properly.

    Heres a vid I just made explaining it first hand. Note, yes it is unloaded, I forgot to show it at beginning of vid but show later in vid. Sorry.

    Heres a pic of it. The part should be circled in red if I edited it with paint correctly. I just need to know if its possible to find a replacement for this.

    That part is called the cylinder stop or, sometimes, the bolt. Finding parts for your revolver may prove difficult. I suggest you start your search at [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    thank you very much, I found what I needed, lets hope they still have this in stock. I did find another online source for parts for this model but they dont provide a phone number and the online ordering link is broken so I assume they might be out of business. I look into this place and let you know how I faired.

    If it were me, I would buy the metal I needed, grab up my tools and build myself another one. Problem solved.

    I finally found someone who has one. My friend Got one passed down from his Grandpa years ago. And were thinking how hard it is to come across a Rohm. But like pop eye said just go to [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] they will have it.
