I just got a Remington Model 12C and it won't eject. I cycled some dummy rounds thorugh it and feeds from the mag tube just fine. The firing pin makes a definite strike impression on the rim. The round extracts perfectly but it does not eject. I am not familiar with these rifles as this is my first model 12. When I look into the receiver and around the bolt face I dont even see anything like a pin, or a plunger that would be an ejector. Where should it be and what should it look like?
Also, I think that there should be a small stop-pin in the slot of the action bar just in front the receiver but there is nothing in the slot. Is there something missing?
The SN is 7209xx and the date code on the date code on the barrel is "DO".
After doing a little research on Numrich Gunparts I have begun suspect that this rifle may have a model 121 converted bolt that requires a different ejector. If that is the case, the ejector may have been left out by whoever might have made the conversion. That is a bunch of wild speculation my part because I don't really know what I am talking about with these model 12's but it seems to be a possibility as I see no slot or groove on the bolt face where an ejector could intrude to kick out the empty cartridge case.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I should look for to trouble shoot this thing? Maybe a gunsmith is what I should be looking for. This rifle looks great and has a great bore. I paid a lot for it and I do want to get it working but I sure don't want to mess it up.

Problem solved with Model 12 ejector

SUCCESS!
I got it figured out and it ejects perfectly now. My rifle has a late style ejector which is a plunger and coil spring screwed into the Triger Group frame behind the hammer and recessed into the stock. It is supposed push the firing pin out to act as an ejector at the rear of the opening stroke. When I disassembled the rifle I saw that the plunger was depressed and stuck. It was packed up with petrified brown grease. I cleand it up and the plunger now moves freely. That did the trick: Pump-bang, pump-bang, pump-bang.....you get the idea.
