I had the same trouble with a Ruger Old Army. The chambers in the cylinder were not of uniform diameter. After measuring them, I found 3 different diameters. I bought a replacement black powder cylinder from ClassicBallistx and all of the cambers were the same. They also were drilled deeper so more powder could be used if desired.

Where did you get a nickle plated Ruger ? I have never seen any Ruger that was nickle plated they are blue or stainless or hi polished stainless. Did you buy it used and someone had nickle plated a steel model?

I checked my 5 Rugers and my 2 S&W s, Marlin and my 4 Taurus  that are stainless all are attracted to a magnet .I called Ruger and checked to make sure and they have never made any nickle plated firearm period, also told me that they are an alloy that is attracted to a magnet . I did some research and found that there are several different types of stainless that are magnetic. I dont know about the Umbertis as I only have 1 its a blue model with very soft screws.

Actually there stainless is more stainless they add a few extra elements one is chromium that enhance it and also lets it  be attracted by a magnet. I measured my Vaquero and all the chambers are the same, but its one of the older models Ive shot it enough if they were different they would be worn to the same size by now, wouldnt even want to guess how many have been thru it .

I like those white ones.

Back about 1975 or so I wanted a genuine ivory set for my Colt SAA. I priced them and they were expensive but not ridiculous. But, being a tightwad, I put it off. Of course, I kick myself now for not getting them back then.

I have never liked any of Rugers stock wood grips seem to thin to me my white ones are just a little thicker but it makes a difference to me . I had a set of oversized ones on a Super Blackhawk 44 Mag years ago that tamed it down to where I could manage 75-100 full bore loads before my hand gave up.

I stopped by the local gun store yesterday. He had a SS 7 1/2" barrel Ruger Old Army for $450. I didn't check the bore out but it looked in good condition. He said he wouldn't take less.

I already have 3 Old Army revolvers or I probably would have bought it.

I just sold a 3.75 inch Ruger Vaquero now wish I wouldn't jumped the gun, really handy size and shot as good as my 7.50 inch at 25 yards.

When all cylinders are the same diameter that lets you adjust the sights and then your going in the right direction. It doesn't matter whether its black powder cartridge or modern stuff, same idea applies for all of them.
