No, I have never fired it. Maybe someday.
Problem with shooting any revolver in this condition is the drag marks that will be left on the cylinder. Even opening & closing the cylinder can leave marks. I always close the cylinder in such a way that the bolt falls directly into the notch, but marks are still left when the cylinder rotates. Nolte's book "Pistolsmithing" shows how to stone down the top of the bolt to prevent this happening, but I've never tried it, though it looks easy.

No I had it done by APW Cogan. I'm mostly happy with it except for the polishing on the frame.

Yes, but nothing more important than polishing the flat parts, where imperfections are most noticeable.
