Not long ago, I was in a gun store looking at a "Lady Smith" to buy for my wife. During my examination of the revolver, I noticed that each cylinder had powder residue around it and the barrel was dirty too! I challenged their claim that it was NIB. They stated that companies fire a test round from each cylinder and do not clean the weapon afterwards. My question to you you forum members is this. Is that a true statement? Do manufacturers actually fire rounds from each cylinder? Thanks for your time.
