I'm really liking this rifle. However, it fails to eject more and more. I have been keeping it clean, but that doesn't seem to help. The bolt moves freely and the mag appears to be in tact. Everything functions as designed. Just fails to eject the spent brass. Any tips on how to resolve this?

Remove action from stock, and strip action at least to the point that you can unscrew cap on gas cylinder, and take the gas piston out of the cylinder. Take a pipe cleaner, curve the tip into a quarter circle, wet with powder solvent, clean out the gas port- hole that goes through from cylinder to the bore. Then scrub inside of the cylinder with brush and solvent. Clean gas piston. Be sure bolt (which has a lot of moving parts) has a light lube.

c3... you are a gentleman and a scholar. I found a youtube video on how to disassemble my rifle.


That gas tube was filthy. Everything is clean now. I bet it was the first time it was ever done since 1973. I'll shoot it this weekend and let you know if it's ejecting.

Thanks again c3.

Hate to say it, but if rifle is clean, lubed, properly assembled and is still not working- time for a trip to the gunsmith. Sorry-

I did not break down the bolt itself during my cleaning process. I wiped it down and took a nylon brush to the face. It appeared clean to me, so I put it back together. Taking the kids trick-or-treating tonight... hopefully I will have time to tear it down again, including the bolt. It's really in great shape, I just need to get it functioning right. Had a nice 8pt buck in the back last night. He needs to meet this 243!!!

The bolt has been torn down, cleaned, and lightly coated with Break Free. Everything is moving a bit better now. I paid close attention to the movement of the bolt and face before I tore it down. It appears to move more easily as it rotates. Could be in my head... we'll find out tomorrow.

Took one shot... failed to eject.

Looks like dad's deer rifle is staying in the safe this season.

I live just a few miles from my LGS. I dropped it off today. Hopefully their gunsmith can get it fixed before deer season. If not, the 243 will have to sit this season out. I will keep ya'll posted.

Sorry I was not following your thread. Often the chamber does not get cleaned enough on these auto's. When you run a bore brush thru it does not even touch the chamber walls. You have to use a larger brush to clean out the chamber(and not put that brush thru the bore). There are other things it can be also but your smith will take care of it now. Good luck!
