Desided to take my trusty 22LR AR-7 explorer to the range to sight in a new scope for it and the scope worked just fine, but the AR-7 started having ejection problems. I was using some federal ammo and switched to CCl to see if it was just getting picky on ammo and the same damn thing continued to happen. Then I tried different Mag's hoping was it. No such luck. Then I field stripped it and cleaned it again and still had the same problem.

Any Ideas?

I don't have an AR-7 but did you take apart the bolt and the ejector to see if there is gunk built up there? 22s are very dirty.
good luck.

No not yet, but I guess that will be the next thing to do on my list.

I'd check the extractor first, then the ejector.
I checked that, and saw no signs of problems or wear or breakage.

Thanks guys.

The trouble I have had with them is what has been said the mags and the extractors.

Take the bolt and soak it then blast it with compressed air.

Thanks, I'll give it a try. Man it's always been a good little shooter. I hope it gets over it's sickness cuz I tend to get rid of firearms that won't funtion pretty quick.
