Short Magazine on 94 Black Shadow

Post by Old Time Hunter »

Ok...common jam on the Winchester 94. The dreaded under carrier jam. Usually not as frustrating as it used to be. Easiest way to unjam....take the plug out of the magazine, take the spring out and the plunger. Usually can use a bit of gravity and a small diameter wood dowel to guide the offending cartridges back into the magazine. But that is on a normal, run of the mill, Winchester 94

What about the short magazine Black Shadows and Timber Carbines? They do not seem to come apart the same way....any body have the proper disassembly of them?

Guess nobody knows how to take these apart without bending the magazine?

Have to bump this....still struggling to figure out how to take the tube magazine off of a short mag Black Shadow without scratching the heck out of it.

Not sure of the actual version the Black Shadow or Timber carbine, but... if it follows the general rule, then take the rear barrel band off, remove the mag tube cap and let the spring out... the follower should slide right out.

My 2008 parts book doesn't give a separate listing for the mag cap on the Black Shadow or the Timber carbine, but from your picture it appears that it has an integral sling stud, if so, that should unscrew to take out the plug, you'll also need to remove the rear barrel band, it's screw forms a barrier to keep the magazine in place. It might be a later feature added after the publication of my parts book.

Sorry, just saw the question... I don't get to read every topic before they disappear off my screen... :P :D
