    It doesn't open easily anymore, the cylinder. I can press release button forward and I also need to give a little tap or nudge to get the cylinder open. This gun functions flawslessly, is clean and I've shot many rounds over 30years through it without it failing. 4" groups at 7yds, standing, unsupported. Thanks for helpful advice :)

    fixed-Charter Arms cylinder(difficulty opening)

    Thanks to those stirring me right direction 1st off. What fixed a cylinder that stuck closed, almost, took two hands to open, was a screw located directly under the firing pin hole, with cylinder open I adjusted the screw until I could once again, open/close cylinder with one hand. 2" snub nose, 5shot, non +P, approx. 30yrs old. Has a couple thousand rds through it, functions flawlessly. 4" groups at 7yds easily enough, standing, freehand. Not a S&W but very good gun for price, about $330's these day's, it's not a quoted price just a guess,:)
