Out of curiosity, try a slow stroke and see happens, like when you are examining the chamber to see if there are any more rounds in it. Mine problem was definitely not due to short stroking the action. Maybe my problem was expecting it to behave like some of my friends Henrys.

Default Henry customer service cannot be equaled!

Henry paid for the return (Next Day Air UPS label). It left me on Friday, 2/3 2 pm. It came back to me today, 2/8, at 11:30 am. They replaced the lever-carrier to address the jamming problem I had.

It was determined the returned rifle had a bad receiver. They sent new Henry, received 2/15 and this one works fine. No jamming.

Henry customer service is unequalled anywhere in the gun industry as evidenced by the service I received.

Found this thread when working on a young friend's H001. It was doing exactly the same thing, and could not be cycled slow at all. He had put several bricks through it before it happened. I don't even know the correct terminology, so bear with me. The raising arm that pivots off a pin and goes inside the ramp was ground at an angle. That surface contacts the inside of the ramp and acts as a stop mechanism. Because it was ground or fit at an angle, it was making contact on an edge rather than a flat-to-flat surface. Where that edge meets the ramp, the ramp area is only 1/8" or so, and it was slightly rounded to boot. The ramp contact surface was worn enough to allow the lifter lever raising arm to travel too far, pushing the cartridge up enough so when the cartridge leaves the ramp lips it is tilted up, just like in the OP's picture. Building that worn surface up and polishing the lever flatter fixed things right up.
