Brandon, looking through the barrel, inspecting everything I can see, I just don't see ANYTHING that should be causing it..... no marring anywhere, cylinder looks like it lines up, nothing appears to be wrong, but the little cut on my ear said it's throwing something back.

On a related note... I took my Dad's Rossi 38 Spcl that I have with us and for whatever reason it's sending small frags out the side of the chamber when fired. I'm thinking timing, maybe some imperfection in the forcing cone, or maybe just cheap ammo.... I want to get the opinions of the folks here because I don't want to retire it all together. It was Dad's gun and I want to be able to pass it down to my son in perfect firing condition.

It may need to be disassembled and "deep" cleaned. I'd use gun scrubber spray and lube it with Winchester CLP.

It's amazing how just a little bit of junk in a hidden area can cause malfunctions.

Sounds like a timing issue
