Does the pin get captured in place when the bolt is installed?

My issue was not the ejector pin.  Looks like I was missing the bolt sleeve lock pin.

Good news!  A gunsmith in Charleston, SC was able to reassemble my Winchester Model 100 rifle. Most importantly he was able to reassemble the bolt assembly by replacing all the required pins to hold the bolt sleeve, bolt, and bolt sleeve lock together. Of course, I had to order and provide him with all the required pins fitting in the bolt assembly. I test fired the rifle at an indoor range by shooting 20 rounds. There were no jams, and every fired cartridge was ejected well.

I wish I had been a member back when this was first posted. Olin did a major recall on the 100 firing pins and it remains active today. When you return the faulty firing pin with the SN of your gun they send you a new replacement that includes a new bolt lock pin.
