MG34 ejector issue

Postby CavTrooper » Tue Nov 29, 2016 11:10 pm

I am having issues with cases not ejecting and jamming back into the breech area. I am using a 10mm booster cone and a TNW ejector. I think I trimmed the ejector too short and would like to see some pics of one trimmed to the right config. with a case in the bolt. Help is really appreciated. I've finally gotten to this point, it will fire and feed if the empties eject.
Thanks CT

The ejector only needs to be short enough to get it to not hit on the ejector plate when the bolt is being put into the gun.

Thanks, I think I did trim it too short. Got another on order from TNW. May try a little tig weld on it in the mean time.

It lives!!! It lives!!!. I put a little tig 4140 filler rod on the end of the ejector pin and turned it ( super hard) back to dia. and reprofiled the end to just clear the ejector plate. Took it to the range and ran 30 rds. without a hitch, doesn't ding the cases at all. Ran out of time, will fill a snail drum and weather permitting, back to the range. Now to sort out the M60, lots of problems with that conversion.
Thanks for the input.
