Hi!
My friend has a winchester 94 trapper 357 mag. I was quite surprised when i found out that i had to empty the magazine before i could refill it. Is this right? Shouldnt it be possible to refill the magazine without removing the remaining cartridges?

What is the problem. Is the round in the magazine going too far to the rear to let you push down the loading gate to insert the next shell or is it something else?

You should be able to load the magazine at any time, other than being full, or the action open. As Jeeper said, sometimes the loaded rounds may project rearward past the loading gate, not allowing it to be pushed inward. Try easing them forward a bit with your thumb enough for the gate to get behind the rim. Then, you should be able to insert another round. May have to do this for every round.

On my Marlin 1895, I use round nosed bullets to nudge the loaded round ahead slightly prior to pushing inward on the gate. Works for me.

I think the problem is that the next cartridge is blocking the loading gate. What can cause this? Could it be some worn parts?

It's possible, although I suspect that it more a case of a rough finish on the loading gate where the case hits it. It my be possible to polish that part of it and then touch up the bluing once it is smooth and working right.
