Take a look at this thread:  https://www.cascity.com/forumhall/index.php?topic=64846.0 for an explantion of the problem.  The original Winchester bolt/ejector seems to be different than the replacement Uberti rifles.  I wound up turning the Jamison brass to Uberti size.

Here's a bit of info I typed up in my Project Rifle thread, look down toward the bottom of page:

Thanks Dusty, will do.  Finally got a mag button made up for my short tube.  Hopefully I have copied what you have done previous.  Changed the barrel out to a 24", 45-60 while I was at it. Looking forward to getting it all back together.  Just short the tube.

$100 for a 3' section delivered to my door.  Tube on the way!  Thanks much!

Likely the big reason was that with a rifle - they could hit things regularly - with a carbine, that could drop off.

Not all were a Louis L'Amour character who could hit things with a Single Action Army at 200 yards in fading light and moving away - but then, no one was.

The rifle was a tool - like the long-barrelled shotgun was - it was depended on to bring home meat.

The carbine was more convenient for a riding man.

By the time the Silver Screen got up and running, more carbines showed up in saddle scabbards - in the movies, rifles were at the home place or in the chuck wagon - so the carbine became the go-to sidearm that folks wanted to believe in because they were what was seen - and 'everybody' knew that Hollywood was an accurate portrayal of the times.

Scouts Out!
