So I bought a Winchester 94 after many years of wanting one. I get it today and it just runs like hell.

First off, getting it apart was easy, but putting it back together was one of the worst experiences of my life. I still don't know if I'm putting the trigger assembly back together correctly. I tried looking up instructions, but all the triggers are different from my own. Here's what mine looks like.

So, I guess I need to find out:

1. How do I correctly put the trigger and hammer assembly back into the rifle?
2. How do I smooth up the action so that it doesn't feel like it was built from stone?
3. How do I load this thing without the bullets popping back out again?
4. How do I keep empty shells from hitting me in the head?

Thanks.

Ah, another unhelpful person. How do I know that those things will have my trigger type in them? Anyone with any actual helpful suggestions?

Ok. I have had to edit and or delete 3 posts and the rest seem to not be getting the OP his desired answer. OP feel free to try again but maybe post it in the Gunsmithing/ Repairs forum and see if you find the answers your are looking for.
