I came across an old Colt Officers Model HB for next to nothing a few months back and snapped it up.

Being a DA revolver nut, I know S&Ws inside & out but not so much about Colts, other than that they’re unique in the way the hand bears against the ratchet when the trigger is pulled.

I noticed the other day that the cylinder doesn’t quite carry up all the way at full cock (the cylinder stop hasn’t come up all the way.) It does lock when the trigger is pulled, however, if I release the trigger too quickly, it doesn’t.

Is this normal for a Colt (I wouldn’t think so)? Do I need a new hand?
