election port

On the M16/M4 there's an ejection port cover. Does this ejection port cover open and close at each shot?
Everyone has to earn his title.

The ejection port is always open, the bolt is closed when a round is in the chamber when the round is fired the bolt recoils and the casing gets ejected. What I think you are talking about though is the dust cover. It stays closed until you fire a round and then it stays open until you physically push it shut again.

Ok just re-read your orginal post. But I answered it anyway..... just terminology...... it is generally refered to as a dust cover and does not open and shut after every round
