Purchased this revolver several years ago and usually shoot it double action but I have also shoot it a bit by cocking the hammer.

Trying to cock the hammer now does not work. The double action works all the time.

When trying to cock the hammer the bolt will not drop out of the cylinder slot. If I try to cock the hammer it will move a bit and stop ( bolt not dropping) . If I then pull the trigger slightly while trying to cock the hammer I can see the bolt drop and can complete cocking the hammer. Not a safe thing to do with loaded gun..

I would guess that this is a timing issue and would like to know how to fix the problem or is this something for Smith and Wesson to fix.
