Redhawk Jamming - any ideas...???

My 45 Colt/ACP Redhawk will occasionally refuse to allow a full trigger-pull, without letting the trigger go fully forward, and trying again. I sent the new, barely-fired gun back to Ruger last year due to this, and they thought it might be that the trigger group wasn't seating fully in the frame (t...

If the locking thingamajigger (technical term for the part that the lever shoves up into/around the bolt that locks it forward) is still in the gun, and in the 'up' position, pull it down before you try to push the bolt back with the cleaning rod or dowel.

There is definitely an 'art' to loading leverguns. Often you can just push the round in until it almost is in all the way, with the rim still holding the loading gate open. Then push the case the rest of the way with the next round. Only the last round will require the 'pinky' treatment. The first-i...
