How to Remove the Cylinder and Side Plate from a Smith & Wesson Double Action Revolver
In this video I demonstrate how to properly remove the cylinder and side plate from a S&W revolver, including a discussion of the tools required. Using the proper technique when removing the side plate will prevent damage to the gun and preserve its value.
The demonstration piece is a S&W Model 10-5 chambered for the .38 Special cartridge.
The Weaver Deluxe Gunsmith Tool Kit I used in the video can be seen and purchased here.
