I traded my XVR 460, 5 1/2 inch in on a new model XVR 460 8 and 3/8 ths inch barrel model. The new revolver requires significant rearward hand pressure on the swing arm to close the cylinder, whether loaded or unloaded. The revolver opens and ejects easily and readily with fired and unfired rounds. The previous revolver, which I purchased new as well, did not require this challenging action. I rate this revolver as unsatisfactory based on this ongoing problem. Thank you for the opportunity to share this experience; perhaps someone reading this post has a positive, constructive opinion regarding this problem.
