A revolver chamber is a small cylindrical recess, found between the barrel and the rifling, designed to accept a cylinder or cylinder spring, or a combination of spring and cylinder.
How long does it take to empty the chamber?
If you have fired an empty handgun, the chamber should empty in about eight and a half seconds. If the chamber isn’t empty in about eight and a half seconds it’s a bad place for a revolver.
How do I empty a revolver?
There are three ways to empty a revolver.
1. Load a cylinder.
2. Empty the chamber.
3. Unload the chamber and load another cylinder.
LOAD A CLOSER CHAMBER
If you’re looking for a quick way to empty the cylinder, loading the cylinder is easier. You’ll need a spare revolver, or even better a revolver with a spare magazine tube.
Fill the cylinder with a .45 or 9mm bullet, and insert the empty chamber into the bullet tube, pressing it down against the gun until it fits. Then release the bullet tube. Pull the cylinder out of the bottom of the barrel, or remove the cylinder from the barrel and place it in the cylinder spring. Remove the cylinder spring.
EJECT A CHAMBER AND LOAD A NEW ONE
You can also empty a revolver with a cylinder in place. For this action, you’ll need a spare cylinder (or a revolver with a cylinder spring), or a revolver with a spare magazine tube. Fill the empty chamber with a .45 or 9mm bullet, insert the empty chamber into the cylinder, pressing it down against the gun until it fits. Then remove the cylinder spring from the top of the barrel, or remove it from the barrel and insert it in the cylinder spring. Remove the cylinder spring.
Remove the cylinder and replace with a new one.
LIFT LANDING SLINGS
Do you know how strong the metal of a revolver is? How much steel is inside? These questions play a big part in deciding the weight of your revolver.
Here’s the answer: all of that steel, and a fair deal more. All of it is in the grip frame, and most of it is made up of zinc-coated steel.
The grip frame is what grips the frame of the gun, and is made up of brass. Most gun manufactures also make grip frames for other firearms. You might
