I recently purchased a Winchester Ranger model and have an issue with the lever not contacting the trigger block release unless an unreasonable amount of force is used to force the level to make contact. Has anyone else run into this problem and if so what was done to correct it. I stripped the rifle down and there is no buildup on any part which would prevent the level from closing completely. The bolt is completely forward when the action is closed. I am wondering if it is possible that a different lever was installed. I am at a complete loss as to what is causing this. Any suggestions would be appreciated. There is not a gunsmith locally to take it to so I am trying to correct this myself before having to mail to a gunsmith.
