I posted this over in "The Smithy" section but got no help.
Not true, I told you exactly what your problem is. Your revolver is snubbing in transition. If this does not mean anything to you, I apologize. I also told you to get a hand to fit for each cylinder, or if you did not know how, to take it to a smith. You said you wanted to do it yourself. There are books that discuss how to fit a hand in a Colt revolver/clone.

I'm in no way a smith by any stretch of the imagination,
Yep.

just easing the sharp edges of each tooth may solve the problem. Otherwise, stoning the teeth to match the stock cylinder's length should be the fix.
This is absolutely wrong, you fit the hand to the cylinder, not the cylinder to the hand.
