Just got a new 357 1894 cowboy. I've run about 100 rounds through it. All of the sudden it decided it doesn't want to cycle to full open without force. When the bolt gets the hammer to full cock the bump on the bottom of the bolt does'nt want to ride over the hammer. The hammer at full cock does'nt have any down play for what ever reason and therefor won't allow the bolt to ride over it smoothly. Anyone else experience this problem?

Take your buttstock off. Look at the flat bar were the trigger strut goes through and make sure it hasn't jumped out of its notch.

The bolt that holds the buttstock on has to be tight or it will gap open and the stop for the hammer spring can move out of its notch.

If that ain't it, then I don't know without looking at it myself.
