Which parts of the cylinder latch on a Service Six benefit the most from some polishing? My latch is causing a significant pressure spike early in the double action pull. I'm trying to make it better. Thanks

Thank you for the reply, Spike12. Here's what I can share:I don't think you have a problem with the latch. I think you have a timing problem that causing the latch to delay in releasing.
You didn't say, but as a cheap attempt, remove the trigger group and make sure it's clean and that there isn't so much crud that it's throwing off the timing. Re-lube with a very light oil or light spray, depending on your style.
If you bought the gun new, and know how solid SS are, I suspect somebody has messed with innards. Maybe by polishing too much.
I wouldn't remove any material from the latch that engages the cylinder. Doing so will make the 'lock up' more sloppy than it is.
