    Default Springfield 1903 ejector

    Need help.
    Found a stripped 1903 receiver in my junkbox and decided to put together the missing parts. I have no experience with Springfield and I got problems with the ejector. I put the ejector in place, install the pin (with slotted head), but the ejector has a play back and forth. Is this correct or the assembly is requiring the involvment of other parts?
    Looks like everything US Army changed from the Mauser design is wrong or plain stupid.

    thats all there is to it just two parts the ejector and the pin that holds it in the rec. put the bolt in and bring it all the way back up to the cut off / bolt stop and you will understand how it works

    NW Arkansas. Close to the Okie line, so I can get across ahead of the tax man from Little Rock...

    The flop and slop allows the bolt to work even when the action is full of mud. Kind of a 'garbage clearance factor'.

    Shotgun keeps me fed.
    Rifle keeps me free.
