Assuming the gun is otherwise in good shape, my solution would be to rig it to free-spin once the loading gate is open, assuming this is a Ruger "New Model" action (made from 1973 forward).

You can alter the pawl or buy a pawl already altered, although you'd probably have to fit that pawl to your gun. Easier to modify the pawl you have:

With the loading gate open the cylinder will now "free spin" to wherever you want, allowing proper ejection.
