Ted Williams/Win 94 won't feed

I took this rifle to the range and the first time I loaded a round in it I could not get a round to cycle.The lever wouldn't move it completely jamed.Dug it out after I got home and double checked the length to make sure it wasn't to long,checks out fine.

Your cartridge stop could be bent. Check your cartridge guides too. Are they tight?
Also make sure the two carrier screws are tight.
Check magazine gate screw.

The action work with no ammo? If it does, it means the feeding cycle is the issue.
There are a swarm of reasons a Win 94 fails to feed. Everything from bent parts to loose screws. There's an old post on the Gunbroker forum where the guy found an old '94(Ted Williams stuff dates from 1964 through 1980.) that wouldn't open at all had hardened wax in it.
Not entirely convinced a drawing will help, but this is it.
Spelling and grammar count!
