    I have been restoring the above-mentioned rifle, and I don't have a magazine for it yet. I test fired the rifle without a magazine, and it worked fine, except the empty brass would not eject. The extractor held the empty, and continued to hold the empty shell through numerous cycles of pumping the rifle.
    My question is; Does the magazine aid in ejecting the spent brass? :confused:
