Default Looking for a C&R Revolver Gunsmith in OC

I just got an Ivers Johnson model 1900 seven shot revolver. I know it is worth pretty much nothing, but I think it would be cool to get it back into working condition.

Right now, the cylinder does not lock into place and I can't figure out how to remove it to see what is worn. I am sure that with a little (or a lot) of TLC, this baby can come back to life and be an awesome little plinker.

Thanks in advance,

I think it's the lifter that locks the cylinder.
Could be a broken spring in the lifter mechanism, keeping the lifter from getting out of the way of the cylinder before the hand tries to turn the cylinder.

Part #10 or #38.
