I am having a problem with a Remington model 514 - .22 caliber bolt action.

If I put a round (or snap cap or spent hull) in the chamber and then when I open the bolt the round is extracted from the chamber just fine, however, it is not flipped out of the receiver like it is supposed to - it is just left laying in the bottom of the receiver.

I know that it is something to do with the BOLT itself, because I put a bolt from another 514 into this rifle and the round is flipped out of the receiver just fine everytime.

I have oiled all of the bolt parts extractor, etc. yet the problem bolt still will not throw the round clear of the receiver / rifle.

Is it possible for the extractor to be worn enough that it will not flip the round out of the receiver but yet still extract it properly out of / from the chamber ?

Thanks.

You most likely have an ejector problem. The 514 has both an extractor and an ejector. Gunparts corp. has the ejector in stock.
Thanks for your reply.

I don't really see how this could be related to the "ejector" (even though it is sort of manifesting itself as an ejector problem) because all the ejector is on the 514 is an angled / curved metal rod with a spring behind it. I can push the ejector rod in with my finger and it springs right back out, like I would think it is supposed to with no hesitation or binding.

I am thinking that the extractor is the problem, in that, for some reason it is not catching the edge of the round's rim sufficiently to hold the round long enough for the springing action of the ejector to throw the spent shell out of the receiver.

Is there anything I am missing in the way that the extractor and ejector function ?

Thanks.

The extractor may not be sharp enough to really engage the rim or the extractor tension is low. And you are correct, a loose casing on the bolt face wont eject very far if at all.

The extractor is broken or the spring is weak. What is happening is that the extracted case is not being held tightly enough to hit the ejector and fly out. It is just dropping off the bolt face.

(Other 500 series guns have two extractors, which provide a much firmer grip on the extracted case, but the 514 does not.)

I finally got the extractor out.

It went flying across the room, regardless of my best efforts to keep it from doing that !!!

I finally found it with the aid of my high powered flashlight.

In looking at the 3 parts that make up the extractor unit, i.e. the extractor itself, the plunger and the spring, I can hardly see how this could be a problem with the plunger and perhaps not even the spring. The spring seems to be fairly strong to me.

So my question is, should I order JUST a new extractor piece from Numrich or should I also purchase a new plunger and spring ? The point on the extractor piece appears to be fairly well worn to me.

Thanks.

How clean are the parts & areas they came out of? I have purchased several "non working" guns that have just needed a thorough cleaning in the areas not usually covered in a basic bore swab cleaning.

I just got thru soaking the end of the bolt containing the extractor assembly in muzzlebrake solvent for about 2 days and the bolt still exhibits the same problem. Also, the face of the bolt is clean enough to eat off of.

Thanks.
