Default Gap between the yoke and the frame

Hi ! I have a gap between the yoke and the frame on my 629. The revolver fired about 50 round.

The yoke number match with the frame. The revolver is in good condition, one owner. I buy this revolver 2 year ago.

Normal ?
Thanks !

They are not always a perfect fit. Looks fine.

Huh?? There has to be some clearance.
Worry about the crack on the other side of the frame LOL

Too much free play in the yoke to frame fit (when pushing on the right side) would probably need attention but that gap is fine.

Agreed! My only problem with my 629 was having the yoke screw and cylinder release screw noticeably back out after 150 rounds of full house .44 Magnums. I removed each screw, cleaned screw and the hole it goes in, dabbed purple loc-tite on threads, and screwed them 2 hairs past snug. No more problems and an easy fix! It's now my favorite revolver!
