How to make the cylinder open more easily? I guess after shooting it's a little bit harder to open.

Try tightening the ejector rod (check for reverse threads), chamfer the front of the ejector rod where the spring loaded pin inserts, polish the pin, tighten release. If none of that works we'll try something else.

Likely the ejector rod as Injunbro described. YouTube is your friend if your unfamiliar . Chances are you just need to tighten it. Do get back to us one way or the other.

my 686 did the same and ejector rod was loose , maybe not recommend secured the rod with vice grips and couple pieces heavy cardboard close to the cylinder . gripping the cylinder I carefully hand tightened not to strip or bend the rod no more problems
