Winchester 94

I have a 94 in 357. on the first round after loading the rifle it cycles normally, but after that when the lever is cycled the round goes up but a second cartridge comes out of the magazine falling into the action. The retaining clip seems fine. is there anything else it could be.

Sounds like the cartridge stop on the link is worn down.

You can (maybe) save yourself a lot of heartache by taking it to a smith who knows Winchester 94s.

First, it's most likely, statistically speaking, that Hawg Haggen is right.

I had the same thing happen with a newly purchased (online) Win '94 .44magnum and it was not because of a worn cartridge stop.

Thinking it was, I spent a lot of time and some money acquiring a new lever link (with, of course, new cartridge stop) then spent some aggravation installing it.

Then, when that didn't work, I took it to a smith (over 200 miles away) that was a "winchester-approved" shop. Six months and $200+ dollars later, it finally works.

I wish I'd started with the smith in the first place.

Upside, I now have an extra lever link in case I ever need it.



P.S.: You might get more play with this by posting in the Smithy section.
