I do have 2 slight concerns though, maybe someone can help with information that may be particular to this carbine.
The first one is that occasionally, the shell casing being ejected would hit me in the forehead! This was very rare (2 times out of 20 rounds fired)
The other is, I had problems with the feed, when the ejector failed to remove the fired cartridge! This one does concern me, as the round being chambered would bind when it encountered the fired casing. This happened 3 times.
Any offerings? The weapon is clean, and all cleaning was done with CLR, I took the time to make sure some got into the ejector, and being that the gun probably had never been fired, other than testing, it's perplexing. The action is smoothe, bolt retracts enough to pickup the next round.
The first thing I would ask is what make of ammo were you using? Some of it is under powered. The other thing is what is your chamber like? Are there any pits in it? The next thing would be the extractor. Check to see if it's chipped or broken. The other part about getting hit in the head is a problem with the ejector. They last developed type 3 ejector forces the cases more to the right. The other thing is the extractor again being damaged could be making the cases fly back at you.
I'm not reading that the bolt was striped down.
If not , I'd buy a tool and try that first. Might order a new ejector & spring and a new extractor & spring & plunger . Always good to have these and they're cheep compared to a 2nd UPS charge if you find you need them either because that's your problem or you launch the old ones stripping the bolt.
OK, the ejector/extractor was one of the ideas I had. Bad ammo and the chamber pitting, did not occur to me at all!
No the bolt has not been stripped down, but have somene that can do that for me, and will replace the spring.
Thanks for a start in the right direction to begin solving the problems!
