Default Marlin 1984CB won't feed right.

Okay boys, I am new to Marlin's.

I just picked up my new CB for cowboy shooting. If feed .38 and .357 just fine, but the action was stiff.

So, after taking the bolt out for the first time, polishing the parts that shown contact with some rouge, and cleaning/oiling well, it won't feed anything.

Sure, I am betting it's operator headspace and timing, but can someone help me out?

Check tension of screws would be the first thing. If you had a part or two extra, That may also be part of the problem.
