I have 500+ rounds through mine now.

I also noticed that on mine the action was a bit gritty when I cocked the hammer. So when I had it apart, I smoothed two surfaces, one being the surface of the pawl that slides against the pawl spring plunger, and secondly the surface that slides against the cylinder latch spring plunger. After my range session yesterday, I can tell you that the grittiness is gone.

Have you benched the gun at 25yds yet?

I've got one on my "watchlist", but I'd like to know the real world accuracy before committing to it.

No, I've not shot it with a benchrest. But it seems pretty accurate from the standing position. Next time I have it out I'll use a benchrest and some CCI SV and see what it'll do.

OldWolf,

Couple questions, as I'm contemplating getting a couple Bearcats, fixed sights though for me.

Does it continue to lead up the cylinder pin? Does the bronze brush make any markings to the polished stainless when you scrub it?

Did you ever try using a bench rest to see what it's accuracy/consistency was at 25 yards? If so, how did it do.
