At range. Disassembled 2 years ago. Found some good vids online recently about disassembly of the 336 and thought I would give it another try. Probably a gunsmith within 50 miles. This is flippin’ California and I’m told they all left. Winchester brand 30-30. Safe direction. Not a novice, but not a pro. No experience with this model.Since he said he was slowly disassembling it and that it was a DB idea since he had no gunsmith near him I want to make the assumption that he has a round stuck in the chamber while he was shooting.
My question, were you at the range or was this round left in the chamber for a period of time exceeding a few days?
What kind of ammo is loaded in the chamber?
Are you in town or out in the country?
Are you making sure the barrel is pointing in a safe direction?
How far to a qualified blacksmith?

If memory serves, it was a misfire on the range and the action stuck, not ejecting the round. Only got through half of a new 20-round box of Winchester 30-30.righto. You need to go back to the start, BEFORE this happened, and explain the series of events, that led to this. Also explain why you think parts are missing, or not functioning? Safety applied or not, the lever should still function, the bolt should still move to the rear.
Please explain how you are sure you chambered the correct round (e.g. pulled out of a factory box, marked 30-30, and looked same as others).
Please explain why you needed to unload a live round.
There is zero bolt movement. And, there IS a live round stuck in there.I'd try to feel if the bolt moves a little, if it does and stops then you probably have a mechanical interlock situation, may be very little movement between rim and extractor? if no movement then it sounds like a stuck case. A cleaning rod down the muzzle Keeping well clear will tell you if you have a round in the breach or a case, by the length it goes in, mark it and then put it along the barrel to see how far it goes toward the breach face.
