Can someone explain where the cartridge block is installed and does the 357 use a different mag tube?

    2. The second reason only applies to the 357. The top end of the finger lever is fitted with a small piece of bent spring steel secured with a screw. Winchester call it the "cartridge block". This catches the rounds as they come back out of the mag tube & holds them in the right position for the action to lift & chamber them. The problem is this little part isn't up to the job and regularly breaks along one of its corners.

    Gun has serial above 6 million. I have the parts to install but don't see a provision for the screw. Don't see installation on any schematic. Someone have a picture of installation? Thanks.
