    If you end up having to send it to Miami, the gunsmith with an FFL license can also save you some money. A licensed FFL can ship USPS where you can't. If you send it UPS or FedEx it has to go overnight to the tune of 50-60 bucks...for them to mail it is maybe 30 bucks.

    If the hand is stuck engaged with the ratchet then the cylinder can not be opened out of the frame. Literally.......nothing can be ascertained unless the side plate is removed and the grips removed.

    I would talk to a good gunsmith & then make a choice about sending it to Taurus.

    I'd set it in a box until I could find a knowledgeable gunsmith to fix it. Problem is, most of the revolver gurus I know have died off.

    Got to be the hand (some manufacturers call it a pawl) at least. The failure-to-open might be cause by a piece of a broken hand locking things up. Send it back, a gunsmith won't have the parts and might not be able to get them.
    Definition of clip

    Call Taurus Customer Service for an authorization number and they will email you a shipping label (you said it was a new purchase?) for free shipping. Take the package to one of those little shipping shops and you are done. Taurus will ship it back to your house, at least they did mine several years ago.

    With any new gun, don't try fixing it yourself, send it back. You may void the warranty and it is best if the manufacturer fixes the issue. Turn around is usually just a few weeks.

    There was an inspection list around here for revolvers, and it works just as well for new revolvers as it does for used ones. It is a good idea to use this list when looking to purchase a new/used revolver. If you are inexperienced, ask the sales person to check for you as you read off each item.
    Battle of Wanat: 10 years ago last 13 July, 1LT Brostram was killed in combat killing the last enemy combatant in the outpost. The LT went to the point of decision and made the difference that turned the tide of the battle. The original investigation found the Bde Cmdr, the Bn Cmdr and the Co Cmdr at fault for dereliction of duty. If you want to see what a sarcastic silver star citation reads like, pull up the company commander's silver star.

I don’t wanna send it to Miami and wait for it to come back here if I could just have it fixed pretty quickly at the shop. Thank you very much for your insight. But even if there is a problem with the hand in the gun, why wouldn’t the latch open the cylinder.
    Since you're not mechanically inclined, then the only way to get your revolver fixed is by sending it to Taurus in Miami or finding a good gunsmith to fix the issue. Good Luck

    The trigger is not resetting, the hand is not moving forward to engage the cylinder, the cylinder stop is not engaging the cylinder. That said it as to be something in the internal linkage broken or sticking. I didn't watch all the video so are you able to swing the cylinder out or not? If not, the ejector the rod that may have loosened and lengthened which will lock the cylinder into the frame. If it can be screwed back into the cylinder the cylinder will swing out. This rod is reversed thread so beware you don't screw it the wrong way. I have had this happen on S&W revolvers before so I keep a set of small pliers and a strip of leather to turn the ejector rod back into place.

    If the trigger is not returning fully to "reset" then the cylinder release will not move enough to allow the cylinder freedom of movement. S&W, Colt and most other modern revolver lock work systems are designed that way; it's all part of the safe operating system.
    I would have had the grips off and the side plate removed almost immediately and it would be clearly obvious to even the most casual observer where the problem originated.
