    Something I was taught was to never dryfire the action of a S&W when the side plate is removed. I assume that is still the proper protocol?
    By the way, the 64-5 with the factory serrated round butt and factory double action only is a relatively rare revolver. S&W only made those for about 18 months. Very cool gun.
    As always, great video. it’s nice to see proper maintenance information/practices being imparted for new wheelgunners.

      That is true Bruce. Its not good for the gun if everything isn’t aligned. I do it with pressure on the sides of the components but its hard on the pins and bosses. Not something you should routinely do. I haven’t even shot the gun. It has become my go to for teaching maintenance and disassembly.
