Default Rossi 92 cycling hiccup

Every so often I get a slight hitch when cycling the 92's action even making sure the lever is all the way open. Occasionally a round, either 38 or 357, will not clear the magazine tube, the nose stays partly inside the tube. I can jiggle the lever a bit to help the round clear and then it feeds into the chamber normally, but wondering what to fix this problem? What in the action would cause the round to not clear the tube all the way with the lever fully open?

First, clean and lube. Clean the mag tube.
Does it happen with a full tube or last round, etc.?

Roger on the cleaning... kinda like restarting the computer. Tube wasn't full and didn't notice any pattern as to first or last round.

Does it only happen with the last round or two in the tube? Is the back of the round getting hung up on something?

The follower could be hanging up or weak spring. I run the stainless spring and follower from Steves Gunz

I would make sure the follower and mag tube is clean and the tube very lightly oiled.

One time there was only 1 or a couple left in the tube when it happened and another time it was the first round cycled on a full magazine that got hung up. So doesn't seem to be any pattern that way with the mag spring. But I will make sure to giver a good clean and light lube.

Grease should be used on the action parts as it will stay in place and make the action smoother.

These old style lever actions seem to work best when the lever is worked firmly as opposed to trying to feed slowly.

Clean the magazine tube and oil the tube and spring. Grease everything else.

I had several issues with my Rossi 92 in 44 Mag in the 90s. I called the Interarms as they are the importer. They had me send the rifle back. I received a brand new rifle delivered to my door in a week.

Those rifles are not well finished inside. The steel is soft. The springs are overpowered.

An action job my an experienced gunsmith familiar with lever actions will work wonders. CAS has people who cater to that crowd. I'd try to find such a gunsmith. I'd search websites that cater to the CAS people.

Do not allow any one to attack it with a Dremill tool!
