Model 15 Questions!
I was lucky enough today to find a Mod.15 Monson Mass. USA 4" barreled pistol. Ser.# 1909xx. I got a very good price on it and I'm happy with the condition but wnen I locked the action holding the trigger back and releasing the hammer I had a little side to side play in the cylinder. Is this a problem as such? I would of prefered no play of course but this was such a great deal and the trigger is superb, that I couldn't pass it up. If anyone has any opinions or info on this pistol I'd appreciate it! Thanks!

I assume that you are referring to rotational play? If so, yes there should be just a bit of movement at lockup, similar to a S&W or Ruger. It's a bit hard to describe, but it should be a few thousandths at most.
The important thing is that the cylinder be in time - that the bolt locks into the cylinder notch before the hammer drops. Many times excessive rotational play is a symptom of bad timing, and should be carefully evaluated.

First thanks for the info,yes I am talking rotational play. I don't have the pistol yet but from what I could tell at the gun shop when I bought the pistol everything is fine including the timing with the bolt, but as I said at lock up I had a little more play than I am accustomed to. I guess this could relate to the bolt and the hand also I just thought someone here might have some ideas. It is also possible that it is totally fine and maybe I expect to much. Go figure! Thanks again!
