Two possibile solutions:

1. Steering wheel may be "binding" the ignition switch. Turn the steering wheel slightly either clockwise or counter-clockwise while turning the key.
2.Use different key or "flip" your key.

Hope this helps!

    Yup .. use a machine oil .. light oil ... (WD40 / Liquid Wrench)

    on the key, not in the switch...

    Once it is free, use a lock lubricant (powered graphite).

    A key maker place may do it for free.

    Hope this helps!

You are probably right in guessing the lock cylinder.
The steering wheel comes off to get to the cylinder, and there are extra steps to handle the air bag.

Key will turn to start in my 1994 K1500

This solution more than likely will require internal steering column inspection.First make sure the entire steering column is not loose.If you can move the steering wheel w/column from side to side or up and down more than 1/2 inch it's loose.Sometimes the key will engage while wiggling the steering column.There are 3 torx bolts deep inside the column that need tightening.Second,the Ignition key cylinder may be bad and need replacing

Not sure?

to 94 chevy have you checked fuel pump? car must be turned off . With key in off position turn key to acc position, radio must be turned off. when key is in acc position you should hear small hum for about 15 to20 sec then it shuts off .This means fuel pump is working. This should happen every time you turn the key switch. If you have pump noise, I would look under the distributor there are two sets of wires that is your spark modulator . remove distributor cap 2 screws on driver side removes it take it to autozona/ checker auto and they will check it
