    I changed the ejector it was worn, and reassembled rifle. I believe I did it properly. My question is what actually resets the ejector?. When you open the lever, you hit the trip bar with rolling block and the ejector opens. The block is down, you put a round in the chamber and pull lever up. Does the block reset the ejector? Is the ejector over the rim(of the bullet)? Is the rim over the ejector and they both get pushed in by the block. I ask this cause I don't have a round, or a dummy round (curse my bones I know) and the ejector doesn't reset empty. If I hold the bock half closed (since it aint holding the trip bar down) I can give the ejector a little "nudge" and it locks into the barrel properly. If I had a dummy round in there would that give it the extra "nudge". I'm very curious since I thought I had the operation of this firearm down pat in my head. Apparently I do not.

    When the block comes up, it pushes in the ejector. If the gun is to be loaded, the rim of the fresh round has to be on the outside of the ejector, or the rim will keep the ejector in the out position and the block won't close.

    Ok then so if the ejector doesn't lock in place when the block comes up empty there is still a problem? So my only problem can be the ejector catch since I need an additional .008 to have it lock into place. The ejector is new.

    The new ejector should be fitted. There is a notch in the ejector that the ejector trip lever engages in. It should be carefully filed back till the ejector engages properly.

    On the other hand, if it works when actually firing, there is not much point to fiddling with it.
