    Taurus 6.5" 627 tracker cylinder binding

    When shooting any ammo that is particularly dirty... The cyclinder locks up at forcing cone after a couple of dozen rounds

    the gap between forcing cone and the cyclinder is very small (compared to any other revolvers I have or have ever had.) I can tell just from eyeballing it. As the front of the cylinder gets dirtier... It closes the gap and eventually binds

    is this unusual? Is it fixable? By me?

    Cleaning the face of cylinder after very 20 rds or so is the only solution I've come up with

    thoughts?

    I have a model 65 that does this same thing but only when I fire 357mag rounds in it. I had read a few post, I believe most of them were here on our forum that it has to do with cleaning and adjustment by taking the cylinder off of the pistol and then making sure that it gets properly seated in place when reassembled.

    I have yet to try doing this as of yet. Maybe I'll get busy with the search function and see if I can't locate the information and get my hands dirty later this week when the rain and cooler weather sets back in.

    Is it clean under the extractor? If the extractor can't seat fully, you will get cylinder bind.
    This is a common problem on all makes of double action revolvers using dirty ammo.
    Ruger even includes a special yellow card warning of this.
