Was just passed my great grandfathers 1897 dates to 1904, the action wont cycle. As best as I can describe it when you pull the slide back the bolt slides through the top and the other piece drops down through the bottom, problem is there is something disconnected between the two they should work in tandem but both are just loose, when I pull the slide backthe bolt goes back but only if I manually push the (lifter?) bottom piece down. Any help?
