Default M1 Garand clip ejection

I have a 1944 M1 Garand, I"m having problems with the clip prematurely ejection out of the reciever before all rounds have been shot. This is a reletively new problem. The gun has worked wonderfully for me and I take it to Camp Perry every August. Really need some help here guys.

Could it be the ammo I'm shooting? The ejector mechanism itself. Please point me in the right direction.

I dont have a schematic for the correct part name, but it is liekly a worn part. I can look it up later this evening if no one gets it by then.

Here is a schematic. I'd guess he's talking about the clip latch. But just a guess.

Awesome guys, keep the info coming. I think I'll go ahead and order the clip latch spring and pin, it never hurts to have back up parts.

First, make sure that the clip latch and spring are clean and lightly lubed. If they are, would bet on the spring being worn.

Of course, for problems of premature ejection, we usually need to send you to a specialist.

I have an M1 and have not had this problem.....yet. It happens quite a lot it seems. Here is a link to several sites that address the problem. It could be something as simple as faulty enbloc clips.
