I have 2 of these "Choo-pintos." One has been very nice while the 2nd had a problem with the sideplate screws loosening under firing. This caused the action to skip: the cylinder would rotate but the hammer would not move. Tightening the screws (Loc-tite by my 'smith) solved this issue.

I'm not a fan of the DeSantis clip-grip knockoffs, but I have many RB-J grips to replace them. I found the tiny lug holding the escutcheon would also loosen under firing: loads of fun locating the lug on a dark indoor range! In 2015, they were much more expensive than they seem to be now: nothing wrong if you get a good one.

P.S. No problem at all with the stainless parts.
