Help with S&W Highway Patrolman

Hi There,
I have a .357 Highway Patrolman. When using either SA or DA, the cylinder seems to 'stick' every now and again - this happens whether loaded or not. Can anyone suggest a possible cause and /or solution to the problem. Also, somewhere I may be able to order spares from.
Any and all assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Some things to check:

Yoke/crane straightness

Frame warpage, i.e. is the cylinder window square?

Rear edge of barrel square?

Front face of cylinder square?

Does this only happen when the gun is hot and/or dirty?

Any burrs/dirt in the action?

Is the gun properly lubed?

Brownells and are two possible parts sources.

First check is for a bent ejector rod.
