That is the only thing that I do not care for on the Henry's is the tubular loading of shells like their .22 lever rifles are like. The o'ring is put there for a purpose to have a small amount of tension when pulling the magazine tube back to reload shells. Marlin doesn't make any 1894 .357 Lever Actions currently I have 2 JM stamped 1894's in .357 & really love them. Hey there Tape I can vouch that the Rossi Model 92's are very nice lever actions my Avatar Pic has a Rossi Model 92 16 inch barrel .357 big loop I wished I still had that little beauty but I sold it to pay for my last Marlin purchase a very nice mint Marlin 1894 C pre-cross bolt safety .357. The Rossi Model 92's have great quality and are very accurate. My next one will be a stainless steel Rossi Model 92 in .357

This morning I took the O ring off the tube and soaked it in CLP, for a couple of hours and then replaced it, it worked a little bit better but still not where I would quite like it. Hmm back to the old drawing board.

Any suggestions?

Have you contacted Henry ? I was planning on it if it does not get easier.

Yes I did, they suggested I try a different O ring, and if that doesn't work they suggested that I send it back to them. I went to Home Depot last night and got a bunch of O rings and tried one and noticed it helped significantly, but still is a bit tight. I'm not privy into sending a rifle out, so I'll probably just try a bit of polishing around that slot where the inner tube with that little knob sits and inserts in outer tube, specifically the outer tube itself, and see if I can't resolve the problem. BTW Henry was very pleasant to work with, and seemed generally concerned.

Note I was at Wal Mart the other day, and they had a .44Magnum on the shelf, so I asked to check it out. The first thing I tried to do was remove the inner tube, it to was extremely hard to remove. Perhaps I've got weak fingers, I'm beginning to wonder. Never had trouble with my tube fed .22LR's in lever action.
