Ah... the "Ejector"... according to the parts book, specific to the .357. Some of the folks over here won't sell parts to you blokes in the UK. The Winchester site has quite a list of where you can find parts. Look under "Customer Service" tab, then "Obsolete Parts".

OK, I just wanted to verify that it was not the hammer that was binding.

Retrace all the steps that you took during the repair, and before or after anything. Were any pins "easy" to reinstall, they might have shifted. Has a scope mount been added, a screw could be too long. Are the Plug Screws for the receiver sight turned too far in.

- The Friction Stud may be bound up, or not moving correctly.
- Tighten the Spring Cover Screw, it may only appear to be tight.

To open the action, lightly tap downwards on the bolt. This may loosen the locked-up action, but it may cause damage if pins have shifted or screws are protruding, or any other part in the way for that matter.
