Default Ruger 44 mag Carbine Issue

Hi all new to the forum hope yall could help me out. I ve scoured the internet, nobody knows.

I've got a Ruger 44 mag carbine (tube Mag). I've field stripped it a few times, never with an issue. However, This time after reassembly the rifle won't lock open. Meaning that when I cock it, the gun wont stay locked open. But not only that, it won't go back far enough for the bolt to even clear the ejection port. After about 21 times taking it apart to try to figure it out, I figured I'd ask someone. I'de like to think I'm pretty good with firearms. But I can't figure this one out. I really dont want to take it to a gunsmith because I'm certain it's something stuipid.

Thanks in advance for any and all help
I NEED to get this rifle back together, it's drivin me nuts

Totally unrelated, but I was looking at this Advert for ESS glasses you guys have on here. I've been looking for some good rx ANSI glasses that look cool enough to wear all the time. work,rec,shooting. I was checkin out wiley x ..... but i've heard negative things. Any input? Looking for a oakley type wrap around style and i wanted to get transition lenses. If anyone has any personal experience or could point me in a different direction. Much appreciated.

I know that one pretty well. But its got so many parts inside i dont know the names off hand. I will post instructions this evening on how to do it if you havent found a solution by then.

The earlier semi-auto carbines had a habit of breaking a couple of pieces inside.

On the next disassembly, double check for cracks or broken pieces.

(There is a reason it is not offered anymore)

the only things you can really get wrong on it is putting the magazine tube in upside down. it will not allow the gun to be fully cocked and prevent the bolt hold open from working. this is most liekly your issue barring any broken parts in the trigger assembly

you can also leave out the ejector but that has nothing to do with bolt retraction or lockback.

you can also remove the bullet guide, which shouldnt be done, but that also has nothing to do with the issue. on some models the guide is held in by screws others like mine its pinned in. both types are where you would expect the scope base holes to be on other guns. the front scope base holes on the 44 carbine are on the barrel.
