Brownells, Inc.

A true gunsmithing project here via @thebiguglyone! "So a customer comes in and asks if we work on old revolvers. I said that our gun plumbers do and asked what he had. He tells me that his friend wanted us to fix his old Smith and Wesson and had him drop it off. Anyone who has worked at a gun shop knows this is going to be good, anyway he pulls it out of his jacket and shows us this beautiful 1945 pre model 10 with, as I put on the repair ticket, 'slight barrel issues' plus the cylinder was stuck. We count 12 bullets stacked nose to butts the full length of the barrel. Upon freeing the cylinder with a few taps of the mighty thumb detector, we pull out 6 shell casings of squib loads."

It looks like Darwin's theory of evolution didn't work this time.

A friend of mine gave me the same problem on a Colt 38 Special.

The barrel wasn't split. I removed the barrel and removed about 12 148gr HBWC. Reinstalled the barrel and test fired it. All OK.

They couldn't figure out why there were no holes in the target.
