I believe your cylinder stop is binding or the spring under it is weakened (or broke.) The stop needs to snap up pretty quickly to catch the next notch. But it needs to be looked at by a smith who understands revolver mechanisms. There may be more wrong than the stop. If you were short stroking the cyinder would lock and you would be unable to fire it. Cycle it slowly (unloaded of course) and watch the stop under cylinder. It should drop down as the cyl. begins rotation and immediately pop right back up and ride on the cylinder until it catches the next notch. If it doesn't you've found your problem. I used to work on a lot of Taurus revos and they are pretty good guns but sometimes the springs they used were kind of "cheeseball" if you know what I mean.
