    A freind of mine has a remington model 4 in .270 winchester. the problem with it is the ejector which is a plunger type is sticking in the bolt body causing it not to eject. i put some fp-10 on it some times works now. right now i have it soaking in Hoppes elite feild cleaner. more than likely i need to disassemble the rifle and remove the ejector and clean it and its recess. problem is i can't figure out who to take it apart. i downloaded the manual for the remington 7400 (modern version of the same rifle) but it doesn't say how to remove the bolt. anyone have experiance with this gun?

    i think i got it. looks like the hoppes elite did it. hmmmm i'll have to evalute this product more. i used fp-10 at 1st and that didn't quite do it and i let it sit for 36 hours. used the hoppes and let it sit for 4 hours. i'll have to do i scientific test between the 2.

    740/742/4/7400 rifles...

    are not something to be disassembled on a whim. A special wrench must be made or purchased, and the extractors are riveted in on many of them. They are an excellent candidate for your local riflesmith, when a problem arises..

    Sure that high pressure ammo was factory? It sounds like soft brass to me, plus probably high pressure. Anyway, avoid it and buy good ammo. If you reload, pull the bullets on that ammo and discard the cases.

    Glad you fixed it easily. FWIW, I'dve Gun Scrubbered the bejesus out of the ejector, using that little red tube to aim it in there, then relube.;)
