    My Winchester 94 (357mag, late model with hammer-stopper safety) locked up at the range today. Action would only open about 1/8 inch. Got it apart, cleaned it, reassembled it. Only problem the tray/tongue which raises the next cartridge from the magazine tube does not raise when the lever is actuated.

    Probably I am not correctly catching the tail of a spring wire which lies along the right side of the action.

    A clue would be appreciated.

    Alternatively, the Nov/Dec issue of American Rifleman had an article on disassembly which, were I as wise then as I am now, I would have scanned in to the hard drive. Are back issues archived anywhere on line?

    thanks.

    Got it. Looks like the action just wants to be fully assembled, with the trigger/hammer group and stock to function well.
