I am not sure this is the appropriate forum or not, I apologize in advance if it's not. I have a 627 Tracker, and there has been one little issue that I was curious if anybody knew how to improve. Specifically, the cylinder release button requires a substantial amount of force and the cyclinder itself seems a little sticky when I try and push it out. Additionally the cylinder release button actually touches the back plate and has begun scratching it somewhat. My Tracker M44 has a fantastic cylinder release and I was hoping to make the 627 more like that. The issue is manageable I am just a perfectionist about this sort of thing and was hoping to get some pointers on how/if I can fix that? Thanks so much!

The best thing to at this point is to send it to Taurus.There is someting misaligned.I have the 44 mag and 357 mag 4 in Tracker as well as a 991 22 mag. I love all of them. If there is a Taurus dealer near you, have them ship it back. Happy Motoring

Well I'm not sure it warrants sending it back. It functions just fine, I just didn't know if there was s simple way to adjust the cylinder release so it didn't require as much pressure to to the job.

Open the cylinder and look at the 1/8" pin in the center of the frame. It needs to come at least flush with the frame. It is spring loaded. Look at the extractor pin on the cylinder. Is it round and smooth ? It should be spring loaded also. My 731 shows wear from the cyl release rubbing, but releases the cyl OK, so I'm not going to file the release for more travel.
I just worked on my 94 extractor pin, it was not round. It is now. Works much better now.
