They may be out of sequence but do show the recoil in at least 1.Poeple may think they only have muzzle flame those make it obvious they don't

I wonder how much the performance could be improved if they could make the gap between the cylinder and barrel smaller of seal it while firing? It seems that there is a lot of energy being lost. Thoughts please.

I guess it's a balance between leakage and reliability ~ smaller gap = less room for expansion and greater risk of jamming.

I reckon the manufacturer has probably optimised it pretty well. :p

You really don't need to seal any more in, as Sooty says it really is working rather well, I suspect that was not a full load as having fired them and the bigger .44" Magnum the weapon ends up well above your eye line due to the massive recoil. ;)
