Look at part number 10/11 on this page:


... There seems to be a spring on the carrier rocker (early models). Have you examined your carrier rocker?

I doubt it is the groove on the lever, but I would still compare it to another early '94 lever as well.

Hey Joe, One more thing I would try... and you may have already done this.

I rebuild old clocks and watch movements and do a little bit of gunsmithing. One of the things I would do is disassemble your carrier and I would clean and polish the pivot points. If the rifle functions 90% of the time but hangs up just some of the time there could be old grease and dirt and dust causing intermittent failure.

This is almost always the cause for failure and clocks and watches and sometimes guns.

In this case I would clean and polish the carrier pivot hole and the carrier screw that goes through both sides of the receiver.

Regards,
Patrick

If you haven't tried this... I would do so and after reassembly I would use the smallest amount of light synthetic/gun oil on that pivot point.

...and I do mean the smallest/tiniest amount. I would use a toothpick to pick up a drop of oil and place it on the carrier screw before inserting it back through the carrier.

Also, if you do polish with a compound, make sure to remove it with an ultrasonic cleaner or a soak in some denatured alcohol.

This will ensure you have no friction at that pivot point.
