The picture in post #12 clearly shows the bolt has been put in the action with the bolt guide on the wrong side. Wondered how long it would take for the OP to come back with an "ejection problem". This has been about the 4th or 5th time in the last several months that this has come up. One where a gunsmith actually milled a slot in the bolt guide for the ejector instead of just rotating it to the correct side. Have bolt actions become so outdated that people have forgotten how to use them???
