I have a 29-3 6" that has the cylinder counter rotation problem also. The only difference is mine was nearly unfired when I bought it. I did a little reading, took it apart and installed the new blue cylinder stop spring. At the same time I also installed lighter main/rebound springs. The latter I should not have done. It still counter rotated but not nearly as frequently.

The last time I took it apart to put the stock springs back in I noticed the cylinder stop was hanging up in the window occasionally when the hammer was cocked to the single action position. The cylinder would carry up to the correct spot but the stop was not coming up sometimes. I lightly filed the sides of the stop and it seems to work okay now.

The problem is the gun is so nice that it's not one of my regular shooters, I have no idea when it'll get back to the range to see how it functions.
