  • Colt revolvers

    I recently acquired one of these.



    A colt Peace keeper .357 mag.

    Having some minor issues and figured I would ask some of the older (more refined) crowd for some input.

    The extractor (11) is backing out of the bushing (12) when putting rounds down range.

    I was considering putting a drop of locktite blue on the threads and calling it a day....

    Any downsides to this, or is this a common occurrence?

    P.S. It is not my fault! I rescued this revolver from someone else and it had not seen any TLC since the mid 80's.

    I purchased a Smith & Wesson 500 a couple of months ago. Everyone should own at least one revolver. I like your pick. Good looking revolver. You're revolver is far more practical. My purchase was based on a good deal and pure fun when out on the range. Plus I do a little back country hiking from time to time when I get to go back home.

      I had the same thing happen to me with a .357 S&W. If it backs out too far, you won't be able to open the cylinder. A little bit of loctite did the trick for me.

        Yep, loctite and snug it down real firm, it screws into the ejector star. I've had the same issue with a S&W snubby or two.

        BTW, love the gun, wanted one since I was an SP, they called us Peacekeepers back then. Yours looks to be in decent shape, what did you give for it?

          Another vote for loctite....I compete with my revolvers and have 2 or three of them that had the same problem. A drop of blue loctite fixed the problem, quick and cheap

            Thank you all for the input, locktite blue it is.

            I traded a S&W 659 for it.



            The peacekeeper is an interesting model. Kind of a one off which had a limited run. I think I got the better end of the deal considering I did not like or shoot the S&W.
