Hey all, I have recently acquired a third generation 1873 Winchester in .22 short that serial dates to 1891. It was in pretty good shape when I got it, just caked in decades old grease that cleaned up nicely. It was missing the dustcover which doesn’t really bug me so I’ll either replace it or leave it as is soon. BUT, the magazine tube does not work. It was originally a 24” barrel and tube to match that was shortened to be 22”. The magazine tube spring seems to have too large of an OD, or there is a large amount of fowling within the walls that contain the spring. It was seeping grease and oil when I received it. I should be able to get a different spring to put in there since the body of the magazine looks fine and the Follower slides with ease, it’s just that the spring will compress for the first 7” or so and then get stuck, limiting my capacity. Does anyone here know how to disassemble the tube on a .22 short 1873? I’ve scavenged the internet and come up with nothing.
