    For Christmas I inherited my Uncle Perry's old Remington 700 chambered in 30-06. It was made in the 40's I believe, and is in amazing shape. I took it to the range today to sight in the new scope I placed on it and got better grouping than I ever have....but I had one very annoying issue. Every time I racked the bolt, the casing would either not eject once the bolt had come back all the way, it would only come out halfway, or it wouldn't come out at all!!! I didn't have a single casing eject properly. Is this normal? If not what needs to be replaced?

    I'm guessing the part that would cause extraction issues would be the.....wait for it......extractor.

    Then explain the ejection issue . It's an inconsistent problem. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't extract, but it never ejects.

    I didn't think Rem made the 700 till the early 1960's?

    It has a plunger ejector that could be stuck. Take the bolt out and look at the face. Push in on the ejector with a rod or flat face punch. You should be able to feel the stiff spring of the ejector. Put a drop of oil on it and work it in.
    Could also be a broken extractor but you can inspect that with the bolt out.

    UPDATE: I wish to correct myself. After rechecking the date code myself (and not just taking Uncle Perry's word for it) I have discovered that my rifle was actually made in 1950.

    I just checked and the date code comes back to August 1948. So I'm very confused, because he told me that it was from the 40's. then upon more research I found the code in 1950, then on another site it says 1948. Now most would assume that since it's not in 1960+ it's not a M700 but it says Remington model 700 right on the receiver. Clear as day.
