Hello,I have a 1892 Rossi in .45 Colt.My problem is when working lever,sometimes the new shell will not come out of the tube.It is flush with the back of the tube and won't feed back.I took the spring out and cleaned the tube and the follower(it's steel,not plastic).What do you think?Any suggestions appreciated.Thanks.

There is a little arm at the end of the tube (near the lifter).

Is that releasing the rim of the next shell?

Thanks for the comeback.That seems to be the problem.It works about 80%of the time. I pushed on it with a pen when the shell was hanging up and the shell popped back. Now,how do I fix it?

Make sure there aren't any burrs or rough spots on it.

You may need to take it apart and polish it a bit.

Ok, this site has a lot of good info on working on a 92. Schematics and instruction for dissasembly, also some tips for slickening it up a bit.
Hope this helps.
