Default first time with my 03-A3

I just got through restoring an 03-A3 and took it out for the first time today. I shot a 2" grouping at 100 yards standing freehand with origional peep sights but for some reason it did not eject the shell. The ejector seem to be opperating free and popped out after I manualy ejected the shell. I guess I take it back apart and see whats going on. Any suggestions what to look for?

Any pics? Also you may want to check with Southern Ohio Guns. I thought I saw where they had a3-03 bolts, for about $20.

I was given my dad's old 03A3 and it had the exact same problem. The ejector pin was missing. I don't know if this is a common problem or design flaw or what. I was going to order the part but my dad took it back to make the repair, he built the gun himself so he wanted to fix it.
