Gp100 issue?

Hey all, just picked up a new gp100 357. Everything seems functional but every now and then the cylinder feels stuck and doesn't want to be ejected or seated. It will still rotate just doesn't want to come in and out. I am new to revolvers and am not sure if this is operator error. Thank you for the help!

Just to be clear are you saying that you press the cylinder release latch and the cylinder doesn't easily swing out for loading/unloading but otherwise the gun functions normally?

Correct, sometimes it will but others it will not freely come out.

When I press the cylinder release on my GP 100 .357 Mag. MC, it stay's in till i close it back,then it pop's out.I think that's the way it's designed to operate.

Mine will do the same, just the cylinder won't come out at times unless I use significant force

I sometimes have the same issue BUT it is coupled with the inability to pull back the
hammer or shoot double-action as the cylinder seems to be locked in place.

I have checked my loads for backed out primers, NOPE. Checked the thickness of the
brass I use and have even gone to using just one type of brass for 50-100 rounds.
Same problem.

When it's empty or I have snap-caps in it I can simulate firing it until my hand gets tired
and no issue, it's only when I'm out on the range live firing and usually starts after about
30+ rounds have been fired.

A few people have suggested to barrel is swelling with the heat of firing it and causing
the jamming. Any thoughts as I have cleaned the spur and cylinder index arm as well
as lubed the cylinder spindle until she spins like a top.
