So I picked up a Navy Arms '73 carbine in 44-40 off of gunbroker(1st and probably last time I do that). Well it seems to work just fine until you load it. 1st issue the spring and follower would get stuck in the mag tube. It seemed extremely weak when I loaded it. I had a spare one laying around so easy enough. 2nd issue when you go to chamber a round the 2nd round slides into the carrier far enough that it will not let it lift. I've tried OAL 1.56 thru 1.60 Doesnt matter if you only load 2 shells or 10 it does it every time. I also swapped back to the original spring just to be sure the replacement one wasnt the cause. same thing. Any idea of what the possible causes are? Thanks, T.F. Jack
