Had a gunsmith take apart, clean the ejector rod/cylinder & then smooth out any edges surrounding trigger. I figured since he had it apart might as well have the trigger cleaned up too.
See if the cylinder spins freely when open, it may help to find problem
I had the same problem with my GP100. Drizzled some Hoppes down the axis of the cylinder and spun it until it spun easily and then cleaned up the excess. This has not been a common problem and oiling the cylinder axis should not be normal maintenance; oil tends to attract crud.

I had same issue was harder on one side of cylinder. It was the the star on back of cylinder where spur comes up and ingages it. Was some wear on some of the slots creating iy to bind. Took a small stones smoothed them up. I now put a dab of bolt grease on it after clening have had zero problem since......Hope this makes sense
