    Default Send it back to S&W as

    they will fix it right. I never heard of a cylinder release falling off in 50 years and at least 50 S&Ws from Triple locks to 329s.

    Default Any Decent Gunsmith Can Fix It

    The cylinder release on your Smith is retained by a straight slotted screw. The most likely cause is that the screw just came loose. It isn't that uncommon, and super easy to repair. If you didn't lose the release part, better yet. The parts are readily available, too. As a matter of fact, if you want to order the parts I will show/tell you how to do the repair yourself. Drop me a PM if you want to go that way.
    Best Regards,
    Jim

    We just got a batch of the thumbpieces and nuts in the other day. It is a common thing for those to work loose and be lost, I usually replace 5or 6 a yr around fishing season. Stop by and I'll have you fixed up right quick.
