Smith & Wesson model 629-2 to the range for a bit of .44mag recoil therapy.
It was shooting really well. I even hit a 7 inch three times at 75 feet away.
On the last six rounds of the box the drum began sticking closed.
I got it home and it was jammed closed real good.
I did some queries on the Internet that was no help at all. So I asked some friends and TBolt basically recommended starting with a really detailed cleaning. Something might simply be gumming up the works.
As always I take photos as I disassemble guns in case springs go flying or I can't remember what goes where. This was the pick with the drum fully removed and the side plate off.
I spent some time with solvents and lubes and dental tools and cleared the gunk out from the mechanism.
On reassembly, everything working fine.
