type 38 carbine ejector question

Post by Hammy »

Hey all, I have a question that I'm sure will be answered here. I was given a type 38 carbine by a good friend, he said it was a good single shot, but would not eject. I found the magazine spring and follower were gone, so I found replacements on fleabay. I shot it, it fed perfectly but would not eject. Since the screw slots were already buggered, I took it apart and found the ejector was missing. I found the ejector and screw on fleabay and installed them. Here's the problem; when I tighten the screw all the way, the bolt will only move forward about an inch and binds up. If I finger-tighten the screw, it is still very stiff, but I can force it into battery. If the screw is screwed in about one and a half threads, the bolt works with no problem. Is that normal? Do I have to hand-fit the ejector? If so, where do I sand/file? Should I just screw it in far enough to work and apply thread locker? It's a numbers-matching rifle, so I am thinking it's not the bolt. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Jim....

What parts did you replace?

Doesn't sound like any Type 38 that I have seen.
