Up for sale is a. Fine Condition, clean Complete Cylinder / Yoke / Extractor Assembly that originated from a well cared-for Smith & Wesson Model 66-2 Snub-Nosed revolver chambered in.357 Magnum, with a 2 1/2 Barrel. The Assembly here is configured for the Model 66 "Snubby" which was a bit more scarce configuration, compared to the more common 4 Inch and 6 inch barreled Model 66's. As for compatible models, please note the following information. Model 66 No Dash: WILL interchange, but chambers are not "Recessed", and the threads on the ejector rod of the listed Assembly here are the later threads that were reversed from the original Model 66 No Dash models...
So that the ejector rod does not come loose when fired. This design change occurred with the switch from the 66 No Dash to the 66-1. Also note the 66 No Dash still had the Gas Ring as part of the Yoke, and that gas ring was switched to the Cylinder on the 66-1. If you use this Assembly on 66 No Dash, you MUST replace the old Yoke and old Cylinder with the new Yoke and New Cylinder, and cannot combine one old part with one new part.This is CRITICAL to acknowledge, please let us know if you have questions clarifying this. Model 66-1: WILL interchange, but again, the listed Assembly does not have Recessed cuts in chambers. Model 66-2: EXACT, identical replacement. Later models, such as the 66-3 and beyond, made changes to the Yoke Retention System which resulted in the shape of the Yoke Stud changed, and you would no longer be able to use the Yoke that is supplied with this Assembly. There is very little fouling on the face of the cylinder, and the chambers are bright and shiny.
The springs for the Extractor and the Center pin are strong and responsive, and the Extractor Star mates to the cylinder with accuracy. There is no evidence whatsoever of any rust, pitting or corrosion anywhere on any part of this Assembly.It looks very lightly used, indeed. The Extractor Rod on this Assembly is the SHORT extractor that is designed to match the application of a 2 1/2 Inch Barreled (Snub-Nosed) Model 66... DO NOT USE THIS ASSEMBLY if you have a Model 66 that has a 3", 4" or 6 Barrel, as the Extractor Rod is too short to mate to the end of the Locking Lug towards the front of the barrel on those other, longer-barreled variants.
