    The top lever on my MX-8 just started sticking when I try to open the chamber.
    What am I doing wrong? I tried spraying some breakfree on it but it still sticks.

    What is the chamber, and where did you spray the break free? Maybe the top lever spring is broke?

    Are you able to determine whether the problem is in the top lever mechanism or the locking block? Mine used to be harder to open, then I started cleaning off the barrel lumps & putting on a dab of grease on a regular basis & haven't had any trouble since. John
