I just bought a 1958 model Winchester 94. After firing the empty cartridge will not eject. I have to pry the empty out with a screwdriver. The extractor does grab the empty but eventually slips up and over it. What's your best guess as to the problem? Also, is there a databse I can go to to find the guns age?

Most likely problem is a weak extractor.

Knock the brass out from the muzzle with a rod. Clean the chamber really well. If it still refuses to extract, get a new extractor.

Clean the chamber.

Nice buy! How about some pics once you get your extractor changed out...?

You are prying brass out of the chamber with a screwdriver? On a pre-'64 Winchester?

I'm going to be ill.

And stop sticking a screwdriver in it.

Don't worry, I was very gently with it. The dealer sent it to his gunsmith. We are thinking that it is a very dirty or pitted chamber. Anybody have an estimate on value? Cosmetically, it appears to be in very good condition - not excellent - compared to others of its age.
