I have a model 94 in 30-30. It was made in 1974, very clean, no sign of wear. The problem is when I lever a round from the magazine tube to the barrel.The cartridge looks like it doesn’t center and therefore jams. I can jiggle the lever back and forth and sometimes it will pop up almost level and cycles in,any help appreciated

Hello Mark,

The quality of the manufacture and workmanship assembly of the Model 94 was at rock bottom at the time your Carbine was manufactured, and problems like the one you are describing are relatively common for the 1964 through 1977 time period. You might try stripping down the action and thoroughly cleaning it, and then a light oiling of the internal action parts.

Thanks, I tried that before i posted . If I were to try and replace the internal parts that could solve this problem, what would you suggest?

I personally would not spend the $$$ in an attempt to fix something that will never be worth what you put into it.  I might try stripping down the action and lightly polishing all of the internal parts in an attempt to slick them up a bit, but beyond that, there is no guaranty that anything you try replacing is going to fix the shoddy production processes and parts that Winchester used when they put that Carbine together back in 1974.  I would sell it for what I could reasonably get out of it, and then purchase a 1946 – 1962 production Model 94.
