I've got a 66-1 snub that has a 'hard to open' cylinder.
From reading this thread, I decided to try a few things today.

I checked the thumb-latch and noticed that it did not move all that freely.
I removed it, put a few drops of gun oil there, replaced the latch and worked the oil in.

It seemed to help a lot! (thanks JGR_LV!) This revolver is kept very clean, and I thought it had enough oil. But apparently the cylinder-release thumb latch needed a few extra drops.

I'll try it again tomorrow and see how it's working.
