    Need some advice please.


    Winchester Model 101 Diamond Grade started off not cocking every once and a while. In order to fire gun, it would have to be re-opened and closed.


    Now it mostly won't cock.


    Gun belongs to one of the old timers at the club. If I knew what to replace I'd give the repair a try.


    Any suggestions to what may have failed and is does the repair require any special tooling


    Thanks in advance.

    Chances are, a cocking rod is worn. Nu Line guns has most of the parts for these guns. I imagine some of the posters here shooting these old classics have a favorite 'smith they can recommend.

    Chances are the cocking plate is worn. It's not real hard to replace. You will probably need a cocking plate guide rod and spring also. Midwest gun works in Mo. should have the parts, They can also do the repair.

    Midwest gunworks has parts for the 101, a link is provided. 101s have relatively simple workings. If you don't have a good gunsmith nearby, take off the buttstock and observe what happens when you cock the gun. You should be able to see what is wrong.

    101s are pretty reliable, so first I'd remove the stock and give it a good cleaning. That may solve the problem, if not, you can go from there. They're simple enough, so any decent gunsmith can repair it.

    Roger I would like a list and price sheet as well. I have a couple of 101's so I guess I should be scouting some parts to support them.
