I have been working with my machinist for weeks now and we're having problems with the nubs on the back of the cylinder. A fully machined cylinder may prove to be far to costly. We are working with a local metal smith to cast some cylinders and just mill the holes into the cylinders. I am waiting to see what the finish looks like. I will try several casting methods until I am pleased with the results. When I like how it looks, my next problem will be to find some cylinders in mint condition to make the final cast from.

Have you tried making the new cylinders accept a stock 6 shot pellet clip at the back ?
Maybe some thin wall tubing in the 6 holes to join them together.
that would allow shimming to stretch the cylinder assy for a little better seal as needed.
Then you would not have to machine the nubs (rachet teeth) and then can be cheaply and easily replaced.
Here are some of my projects:

Smiley's idea is a great way to re-new old cylinders.
The nubs on the back of the cylinders is definately one the the Spotmarkers biggest problem areas. In the past, I've milled the rear off the cylinders and superglued on new 6 shot pellet rings. An improvement on that would be to mill down the Spotmarker cylinder rear, and tap a couple small screws in so you can easily swap on a new pellet ring (with the nubs on it) I thought of that about a second after the glue dried!
Another big problem area is the clasp that holds the revolver frame closed. It has a small rubber piece supplying the upward pressure to keep the hook engaged. The rubber wears down, then when you draw the marker or shoot it or move it too quickly, the gun folds open!!!
