Default Model 66-2 Update

A few weeks ago I acquired a 66-2 and had a few problems I've never experienced before. I've shot a model 19 and 586 over the years and they are great. However the 66 was binding, cylinder would lock up at times. This is the first revolver I've shot extensively and realized they must be cleaned very good after range sessions, and go easy with magnums if its a K frame. I was dumping magnums through it. After cleaning and trying different ammo, 38s and 357s its shooting great. I still shoot magnums but usually sticking with plenty of 38s. I've been shooting it well with good groups. I'm keeping my Colt .45 and Glock in the safe for now. Attached is one nice shot I had with some defensive 38 ammo. I loaded one round in the cylinder and got lucky.

My LGS had a new model 19-9 and I really wanted one when they first came out. The finish and grips are well done but after working the action it does not feel the same as the older S&Ws. May just stick with the older models for now.
