My rifle extracts the empty shell with out a problem, the problem is the empty shell won’t eject out of the receiver.  It lays on top of the next round to be chambered.  

I would appreciate any advice.

May not be a mechanical issue, try working the bolt a bit work briskly. I’ve had the same issue when moving the bolt too slowly.

I have tried a heavier hand but doesn’t seem to help.  Also, the fired shells will eject out the left side of the receiver sometimes??????    Can it be an ejector problem.

Thank you, I appreciate your response.

Check to make sure the ejector (the half moon piece toward the rear of the breech) is not installed backward.

There is a channel in the middle of it, and at the front right side of the channel a corner should be shaved off.

If you don’t see it, the ejector is likely on backward.

Here’s a photo:

Thank you for your response.  I have polished the left extractor so it releases the shell better.  That helped a little.  When the magazine is empty the shell ejects properly.  The magazine has a lot of play.  Is this correct?  Or is that my problem?  It seems if there is a round in the magazine it retards the ejected shell.  Any more ideas?

With feeding issues the easy answer is to try another magazine. Ejection? Maybe. Factory or aftermarket mag? Never had an issue with a factory magazine but it’s possible.

I have tried three magazines including two original Winchester’s, still have the problem.  Any more suggestions, please.

Thank you.

The box magazine should not have a lot of play.  Something is a miss. Without the rifle in hand I couldn’t venture a guess. I’ll try to pull my 75 out of the safe and give it some thought. Will post if I come up with an idea.

I once backed out the trigger spring adjusting screw too far, trying to reduce trigger pull.

The screw was contacting the bottom of the stock (in fact, making an indentation), and caused the action to not sit quite right in the stock.

The result was the magazine did not fit properly in the magazine holder, and gave feeding problems.

I will check that issue.  I did back out the screw.
