First check to make sure there isn't debris under the extractor star. Even the smallest amount will cause it to stick out just enough that it wont allow the cylinder to lock back into the frame. Also check the front of the frame where it closes to make sure it's clean also. Build up in either of these two area's can cause problems with the cylinder closing. Try a good cleaning first and let us know. Good luck.

Mine was difficult to close, there is a spring loaded pin that locks in the end of the ejector rod that the bevel was worn about off of. A little work with a file fixed it right up.

Could be as simple as the rod, has been unscrewed from the cylinder, causing the star, to be too far out, witbout debris under it. Try tightening it, while holding the cylinder.

I have been looking into the 82 & the 66. Quite a few reviews complain about cylinder problems. Some say that after 2008, taurus did alot to eliminate these problems, but maybe not?!!! What about Rossi revolvers? Cylinder problems also?

Remember that the star is threaded counter clock wise or left hand thread.

The extractor rod has been a weak point on just about every make of revolver for centuries. Sometimes it takes a while, but they all seem to loosen eventually. My Model 66 took upwards of 500 rounds of .357 Magnum when new to begin working itself loose. My Model 19 S&W came from the factory with the rod only hand-tight.
