Some don't like .38 specials due to the shorter overall length. Some don't feed well with semi-wadcutter shaped bullets. Not a lot of them, but some rifles are a little finicky.

I would first do a full strip, clean, and oil. Pay particular attention to the screw that holds the loading gate, the mag tube and follower for grit or burrs, and the plunger on the side of the lifter arm.
