We ask that new people stop by introductions and tell us a little first.

Your question has too many variables. Is is stuck closed? With a round in chamber? Stuck open? Lever won't work? Stuck in the mud?

Please clarify. Thanks

Broken shell?!

My model 94 Winchester was the first one of 2 that I purchased in 1979 for
myself & 1 for Pop as we started deer hunting in 1980. I bagged my first 5
point, (not counting brow tines) on opening day of deer season. It was a mule deer, & we have never had a problem with our winchesters! "Need more
input"!;)

Did a cartridge pop out under the carrier? That's a common problem with older 94's.

I'm sorry, but there is enough information from the OP for me.

I just fixed this a few weeks ago on a friends 94. The finger lever pin has backed out of the cartridge guide under recoil, preventing the action from levering back into battery. Remove the finger lever link screw, You will see the pin through the hole, and use a punch to tap it back in. This will restore function, so as to disassemble and replace the undersized pin, or, stake the original. My friend did not want to do this last step, as he was in a hurry for deer gun season. IMHO, it happened once, it will happen again if not properly fixed. His rifle is shooting away with no issues right now, but........

Go here for a guide to the parts I'm talking about:

That is the line I was thinking, but the OP should still explain what the problem is. Some people find out new info when the problem is reported in depth.

His question just could have been "My truck won't start. Why?" Then we have to play 1000 questions to him/her.

More explanation on his part will assist others who may have the same type of problem or what to look for.

Remove the stock and soak it in kerosene for a couple of weeks. If it doesn't free up soak it a couple of more weeks. It took two months to free up this 92 Winchester I dug up.

Agree with the "remove wood and soak", but instead of kerosene, find a product called KROIL. It is the best penetrating oil I have found. Once you get the action to where it will move, YES, the rifle will need to be detail stripped and cleaned.

If it's just lightly stuck you can spray it with Kroil and it might free it up but for a long soak kero is just as good and a whole lot cheaper.

Sir, I found this weapon in an old building I was tearing down, so I don't know if there is a live round in the weapon or not. It would not when I was checking to see if it had a live round

Well, I very sorry if I didn't explain it enough my Apologies. If it was a truck I would not have to ask any questions
