K98k extraction/ejection issue and question (solved)

Postby pdaddy » Mon Nov 21, 2016 10:42 pm

Couldn't find much information about this on the internet so I thought I'd post this for other people with the same problem.

Recently bought a K98k yugo capture in great condition from gunsamerica. I have not had a chance to shoot it yet, however, I wanted to make sure the gun chambered and extracted live ammo before I went to the range. I chambered a round and the extractor pulled it out fine but it did not eject. Long story short, i took apart the ejector and found that it had been assembled...backwards. I flipped the ejector around and sure enough, now my mauser ejects cartridges 10ft across the room. I don't know if the Yugoslavians did this during the refurbishment of the captured rifles or if the seller wanted to prank me, but I found this interesting. :whist:
