Took it apart to clean, Now can't get it together right. When I put the two pieces togeter, fits fine, but lever binds and will only move about 1/2 inch. Have tried a dozen times. seems the lever is not moving the bolt right...help?
Make sure the bolt is aligned inside the barrel end. The Ejector will sometimes push it out of alignment.
If it has the cross bolt safety, hammer back, lever fully closed and it should align easy.
On the older model hammer back, bolt SLIGHTLY back and Lever SLIGHTLY open. Align tabs on the stock end and with a hinge like motion, align the halves. Finger tighten the takedown screw and go shootin.
