Our greatest problem shooting this revolver turned out to be glare from the front sight, including the stanchion below the front sight.
As the barrel thins out toward the muzzle, there is enough room to start the cylinder rod with the full-diameter-side facing the barrel. This will lead to jamming against the outside of the barrel as the rod is pushed into the frame.
