Morning y'all.
Coffee is hot.

'Tis 55 and cloudy. "Mostly cloudy. Scattered showers in the morning  then a chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs in the lower 70s. South wind 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 50 percent"

Ok, Cliff, I'd like to back up a minute to be sure I understand something.

Has the Schofield in question always been louder or has it developed over time? The reason I ask is that I'm wondering if something has (become loose and) moved or if it was made that way (poor QC).

next thing you'll be wearing man-rompers.   Grin

As for me, I don't "romp" so I don't need "rompers"

Ant to all those in the clothing advertising business , I 'm not sure what you mean advertising "men's tops", I wear  SHIRTS!

Mine is a Gregorelli & Uberti from 1962.
The makers' mark is circular, too.
All marks are on the right side, the serial number is stamped on the butt.
That's probably the first cartridge fed gun with the Uberti name on it.

Iver Johnson (the new company) claims to be about to introduce a pepperbox in .22LR, but it doesn't look very authentic.
And I think they have announced it in previous years as well, but it never happened.
Anyway, it seems to be called the Pocket Ace and I'll try to post a pic I googled.

OK, I measured my Schofield.  Remember, mine is a .45, so there may be some differences.

From the barrel face, the length of the base pin is 1.312 +/-.  From the area where the cylinder rides, it measures 1.357 +/-.  There is a slight bushing on the front of the cylinder, which is what rides against the area around the base pin.

The barrel cylinder gap is VERY tight on mine, at least when the frame is closed and the hammer down.  I thought that I might not have a feeler gauge thin enough to fit in there, but I finally got my .0025 gauge in between the cylinder and the barrel.  There is no discernable end-shake when the frame is closed.

I don't know what the tolerances are for these revolvers, but those are some different measurements...

 Grin odd thing. Here in north Texas wild bunch is alive and well. It's shot every month 8-12 competitors. Oklahoma city its growing they have 15-20 shooters at there WB match monthly and they also have a 1911/bamm on the fourth weekend with good turnout. I mainly shoot modern but a few times a year will shoot traditional class just to keep things interesting. As a matter of fact the Oklahoma state WB match will be happening June 10 weekend and they will have 25-35 competitors.  In this area  wild bunch is doing well and we are having a large time!

Using the coil lever safety spring from The Smith Shop the whisper springs in mine hold the lever completely closed over riding the lever safety spring.

The recent Uberti's have gone to the coil type lever safety spring. Much easier to close the lever but still much harder than the one from The Smith Shop.

Mine is 1.319" to the barrel face or 1.370" to the barrel were the cylinder rides.
Is there any signs of the base pin moving like a discolored area? Or is it possible that some thing got into the cylinder base pin hole?

Thanks Kent. That is the same as my other Schofield. The one in question is around 1.382 +/-

Nothing in the hole holding it out. Even with the ejector removed it's the same. You can see down in the cylinder where it is bottoming out and riding on the base pin and you can tell by the end of the pin/bushing it is riding on it.

The barrel cylinder gap is .016 and there is a .010 gap between the front bushing part of the cylinder and the barrel.

One more thing, is there end shake on your cylinder when the gun is closed up? This problem gun has no end shake at all but my other one does have just a slight bit.

I had that same problem when I refinished my  stocks on my 92. I just squeezed it a touch with a pliers.
