Remember it's a backwards thread (left hand). Remove cylinder and yoke from the gun as an assembly.

Clamp the knurled ejector rod in a well padded vise (I like wood blocks lined with thick leather), but don't crush it, it's hollow.

Place three empty shell casings in three chambers and turn the cylinder by hand clockwise when looking at the primers.

Got to resurrect this thread. I have a model 642 that I want to put on a diet. Any sources for a .38 Ti cylinder? Numrich is sold out, and they are north of $100 anyplace else I have looked.

Just about any new S&W cylinder is going to be in the $100 range.

Your best bet is to do a search for a "parts kit" on Gunbroker. These are confiscated guns that have been destroyed by law enforcement. They usually include all the parts less the frame and can be won in the $30 to $70 range. And you can sell the remaining parts to recoup some of the cost.

They've been sold out for years, like 940 cyls. Keep an eye out in the classifieds here and also on ebay and hopefully you'll run across one.

I think all of the old stock of Ti cyls has been pretty much depleted now. I ordered a Ti .41 mag cyl from Numrich's the other day for an M28 conversion project but that's the last caliber they had in stock.


And, since everybody else posted pics... This is my 360J convertible, the original steel cylinder has been rechambered to 9x23 and cut for moonclips so it'll shoot 9mm, .38ACP, .38 Super, 356TSW, 9mm Largo, etc., and it's had a Ti .38spl cyl fitted to it as well.

I've been lurking this post...had to revive it. I was initially hesitant being that I'll be doing this on my every day back up revolver, but the thought of lightening my load out is too apealing to pass up. I'm plan on ordering a Ti cylinder once I find one...thanks for this post.

The titanium 38 cylinders are no longer made..only .357. I've looked extensively and they seem to be extinct.

I have been assuming - prolly wrongly - that the .357 Ti cylinders on Midway will fit a 442 ... at least per the Midway reviews. Still available with a 4-month old 642 review.

I haven't installed the .357 titanium cylinder, but as long as you're putting it in a post 1996 J-Magnum size frame it should work.

I put Ti cylinders on my M&P 340 and 442. When you make the change hold each cylinder in you hands to compare how light the Ti cylinder really is. My friends were amazed how much of a difference there was.
