Last night, one of the local kids (GREAT kid!) that shoots Skeet and Sporting Clays at the local clubs here showed me his post 1964 94 30-30 that he's been having trouble with. He says that when he cycles the lever, the shell comes out of the magazine and UNDER the carrier and does not load (obviously).

Anything to look for here??

Edited....

Tron,

I mentioned earlier the carrier could be bad, I was thinking the Marlin 336.

The part on the 94 is called the link. This is the flat bar that the lever is attached to. There is a tab on the front that wears short or breaks off.

@nd that...most likely a bad carrier...wear is allowing it to elevate prematurely before the cartridge has been allowed to exit the mag tube

Tron if you have another LINK, (some of us call it the floor plate) that is where the only shell stop I know of with the 94.

When I was talked into converting one to 44 mag, that was the biggest pain with the project, cutting it down far enough to let the shell out of the mag, with out cutting so much the shells where not stopped at all.

When the link is pulled down by the lever the boss on the top pivots up to catch the next shell.

The Marlin on the other hand the boss that keeps the shells in mag is on the bottom of the lifter.
