    See them for K, L, & N frame, but not the smaller J frame.

    I just compared a J frame to a K frame. The cylinder releases look to be the same, BUT I removed both and tried to switch them. Won't work. For whatever reason they are made with different size threads.

    I think you COULD get the release and try to rethread it but they are case hardened, and for $60 bucks I wouldn't want to try.

    Another option may be to get one from www.gunpartscorporation.com and have it welded up.

    Thanks for the replies. I too have seen them for the larger guns, but not for the J frame.
