Both pilots reported that shortly after the airplane touched down, the left seat pilot reached over and put the landing gear handle in the up position. The pilots reported that the left seat pilot then returned the landing gear selector to the down position, and initiated a go around. Before the second landing was attempted a manual landing gear extension was attempted, but was unsuccessful. When the airplane landed the second time, the landing gear collapsed during the landing roll.
