The handle is not doing anything more than moving a cable to a drum which in turn moves a rod which in turn moves the piston on the LG selector valve in the LH wheelbay ceiling.
If it was hard to move:
It was not pulled out enough and then moved.
The selector valve could be stuck but that never happens, especially not just after TO.
The drum shaft through the pressure deck could be sticky.
Replace the pilot. It probably was used to airbus or other a/c with small gear handles.
