I am going to try to do this Saturday. I could have just done it but I want to document this for educational purposes. I know most of you are pretty savvy working on your guns but there are many newbees here that I feel like can benefit from a general idea of what makes these things work.

It is dismantled. I discovered a lot of wear on the cylinder latch and the pin that holds it. I ordered new parts to replace these as well. I am going to try to start putting back Saturday and documenting what I am doing. This isn't meant to be a complete assembly/disassembly thread. I a hoping to show what to do to get one shooting that has seen better days.

After being away from HHM for way Tooo long I stumble into the exact tutorial I need.
I've been trying to get a new model .41 mag bisley BH 7.5" to shoot better than 8"@25 yes hand loads, factory ammo to no avail. I will be watching this one very close.

Yes. I will update in a few days. I am going to have to fit a new hammer plunger to the SBH hammer. I have it but haven't had time to fit it. the rest of the work is done. It locks up like a bank vault now.

Have you done any measurements on it yet?
Inspect muzzle crown?
Measure cylinder throats?
Slug bore?
Cylinder gap?
Clearance at gas ring?
Check forcing cone for cracks or erosion?
If so let us know what is going on.

Sorry it took a while to look up the numbers. I found my fils reciept for this RBH Bisley 1982.
Cyl gap .006, cyl pin shroud gap .002+, cyl/breach face .0015, cyl throats .4105-.411 slugged, barrel bore .399-.4105 slugged, cyl pin and cyl wear I can feel it but not really see it. The cyl locking lug looks worn but the cyl stops appear clean and crisp. A question for you reflex264 how do I tell what to replace and can I order upsized parts to alieviate the worn out parts? Hope I didn't leave anything out if so let me know.
