There are two systems used on these. One has a spring loaded retainer/indexing slider button and the other has none. The red clips are normally used in the retainer models and the black ones in the other. I bought the indexing buttons from the late Jim Coplen a few years back and I'm guessing the gent who bought his inventory still has some. The tiny nubs that help you click the clip into alignment are indeed probably worn. On either model they're spring loaded so the spring tension is a possibility as well. In either case if you require parts or assistance contact Jims successor Ken Hofstra at Daisy Gun Works. Great guy to talk to. (520) 305-3114. Good luck.
x2 on Ken- I can highly recommend him without reservation. He's an upstanding gent who goes the extra mile to be sure you get what you need.

Brian, I know the Model 1894 is a 'looker', how are they as shooters? I've never had an opportunity to shoot one myself.

Going to jump in here...
I have 26 Daisy Model 1894s in my collection. Every one is in perfect "shooting" condition, thanks in part to Dennis Baker (Baker airguns) who has resealed/reconditioned quite a few.
In my opinion they are MUCH BETTER than the 1938s, at least as good as the Model 25,  and a really fun gun for target or plinking. They are by far my favorite.
