bolt won't close



Log in to see fewer ads
Hey-

I have 2 project guns on my bench, an 80 & 81. Neither of the bolts will close all the way for the same reason: the ejector and extractor won't align correctly. They are both hitting the breech face BELOW their slots in the barrel.
The e & e look OK, a little worn, not damaged nor misshaped. There seems no way to adjust the height on either one. I am hesitant to file down without knowing where to stop...

Advice?
Thanks

d.

Any chance the barrel has somehow rotated in the reciever a bit?

Probably not related to your issues as described but...

Have you been working on the trigger? My 773 bolt would not close until I got the trigger spring trimmed correctly.

Does the bolt have to be cocked first before inserting so all the rails index properly?

You sure you have the correct bolts for those guns?
Asking cause I got a late 40ís-early 50ís 80DL project that had a trigger that wouldnít reset, turns out it had the wrong version striker assembly. It fit, but took some research to figure out it was wrong. Most 80 series parts have two to four different variants. And Iíve seen a few that have the wrong bolt assembly.
