    "Rhysling"

    For a blind poet, he done good.
    There sure are a lot of Heinlein fans on this forum :-)

    Check new yoke alignment. Realign if necessary.
    Check individual cylinders for drag. If draggy, adjust the tab on each 'leg' of the star with a file to eliminate drag.
    Timing will usually be OK...

    "Iím going to find out if my gunsmith can fit a new cylinder assembly, so I can swap cylinders easily".

    I just did it myself. Averages about 5 minutes per chamber while watching TV.

    "Comparing a Colt 1903 to a Plastic Fantastic is like a Timex/Rolex study and "If I have to explain, you wouldn't understand".

    Well said. That 1903 is a beautiful gun.

    You're welcome. This 637-2 setup is actually lighter than my Kimber Micro .380 and my Micro 9.

    Subjectively, about halfway between .38Sp+P and .357Mag. It's a bit brisk, but I'm not recoil sensitive, so I don't find it objectionable. I shoot 147gr JHP for about 292 ft-lb of muzzle energy. ...

    .38Sp/.357Mag titanium J-frame cylinders are about $139 from Midway. You can also get titanium center pins.
    For each of my J-frames, I have one stock titanium and one reamed for 9mm. 12.5oz.

    They were done on the titanium .38Sp/.357Mag J-frame cylinders available from Midway for about $139.
    Either TKC or Pinnacle will ream them to 9x19 and cut them for moonclips.

    Thanks. I use it in my two Kimber Micro .380s and three Airweight 637-2 J-frames that have been modified for both 9x19mm and .380 ACP. The .380s do OK with either standard or +P as long as it is...

    I like exposed hammers and light weight, so I went with 637-2 Airweight, switched to titanium .357Mag cylinder to knock 2 ounces off the weight, and reamed for 9mm and moonclips for fast reload. ...

    Cluster, I totally agree. The gun has never been fired, so it isn't worn parts, but the surfaces of the sear and hammer hooks do look rough to the eye.
