Older Charter Arms Undercover

My uncle gave me his old Stratford Charter Undercover recently. The cylinder release was inoperative and wouldn't release the cylinder. I got the cylinder open by pulling on the shell ejector rod and then replaced the entire release assembly with all new parts.
Although this fixed the problem with getting the cylinder open, it still feels very rough and hard to push in. I insured that the screw that releases the cylinder was flush with the frame. It came with locktite already on it from Charter. I also checked the shell ejector rod to make sure it was not bent and was working freely, and it was.
Question is whether I missed something or if there is anything else I can do to smooth up the release. I know it's not a Smith & Wesson, but am I just relegated to having to put up with this sort of thing from this brand of revolver?
