Here are some pictures comparing the port of three different versions of the 38/357 caliber.
The first picture is a 1894SSLTD and 1894CP both have the same design and both are picky when it comes to cycling 38's through.
It takes a "double pump" every now and then when bringing the lever up. The shells do not just glide right into the breach.

The second picture is to compare the 1894SSLTD to a pre-safety 1894C. The 1894C works so smooth compared to the other two and it does have that additional metal that is part of the ejector.

Third picture the 1894SSLTD ejector compared to the 1894C ejector.

Can anyone comment about how the later models can be made to work as smooth as the older ones?

flynmoose1,

Were you able to get details about "the exact work done" to make yours work smooth?

I had to send a rifle back in the 1895 flavor due to "letting two in" issues. Never was able to get a detail of what was done to make it right. It did cycle like a dream when I got it back.

As far as waranty goes... well they were all used (but like new condition) when I bought them. So I guess waranty is not an option.

Thanks
