Your model 10 should not be stiff as you describe. In all probability it needs a good cleaning throughout.

According to my records the Model 10A is a take down model, mfg'd from 1907-1828.

I have the disassem/instructions, with photos, if you'd like to have them.

I have completely cleaned and oil the gun. It still seems stiff.No visible wear marks or burrs, Just nature of the beast I quess.

Check all recesses. Any place the action moves. YOu may have something out of sinc. It sounds like there may be something binding in the action. Could also be in the forearm, recoil spring etc.

Haave you fired it? Does it function as it should? Full extraction etc.
