    Lean your head to the side. Suggestion - really clean under the ejector. Might help.

    Tell him to eat more fiber.... :neener: ... sorry I couldn't help it.


    Check to see if there is any marring or nicks that may cause the case to get
    hung up while being ejected. That would cause a trajectory change in the
    brass from before.

    Sounds like it's time for a bolt rebuild. I just did mine and it is pretty easy to do. I bought the parts from http://www.e-gunparts.com/products.asp?chrMasterModel=3830zCARBINE&MC=. Order a new ejector and spring assembly (542340C), extractor (542260C), extractor spring plunger (542310C) and extractor spring (542300C). You will also need a bolt tool, I bought mine from http://www.northridgeinc.com/m1_carbine.htm, they were the cheapest I found.
    Total cost for parts and the bolt tool with shipping is around $50. If you are mechanically inclined it will be fairly easy just make sure you face the extractor plunger the right way when you put it back together so it will lock the extractor in place.

    TIMC pretty well has it.
    When a Carbine is doing this, the "usual" is either a dirt-impacted bolt with the parts so gummed up or fouled it starts ejecting weakly or in odd directions, or the parts are simply worn out.

    As above, the "fix" is to disassemble the bolt and either try cleaning it first, or just replace everything.

    BUY THE BOLT TOOL.
    While it's "possible" to disassemble and reassemble the bolt without a bolt tool, you'll be VERY sorry, and the wife, kids, and neighbors will hear words they haven't heard before.
