Re: New old 94 .32 Special...

That is a nice rifle. You got a good deal and isn't that some pretty wood? The last 94 32WS I had was traded for a Savage 99F in 250/3000. I have neither of them now.

Since it locks up like a Marlin, (about the only similarity) I should be able to correct the problem. It ts not worth the time I have put into ...

Pressures should run around 2,000 to 3,000 PSIG. Cylinders and pumps usually wear out gradually while relief valves go instantly. I really like the "call the mfg". Duh! This last at me. You might also check the motor to pump connector too. Could be a sheared key.
