Anyone removed the ejector from the AR bolt?
I am wondering how hard it is getting the roll pin removed and replaced.

I use the firing Pin to push it out far enough to grab the pin with my finger tips.

So your saying even with the ejector under spring pressure the roll pin moves with little effort and you can remove the roll pin with your fingers.

1. Pinch the extractor against the bolt.
2. Using the firing pin, gently push the extractor pin in either direction out of the bolt.
3. Using your fingers, finish removing the pin and the extractor will easily separate from the bolt.


1. Push the extractor against the bolt. The easiest way to do this is to use your thumb to press the extractor against the bolt while it's facing up and the bolt face is facing away from you. Use the second knuckle of your index finger as the opposing force on the boltwhile holding these two pieces together.
2. Push the extractor pin through the side of the bolt, making sure it engages the extractor. Make sure the pin is flush with both sides of the bolt.

I am wanting to remove the (ejector) it's the small pin that is in the bolt head sticking out about 1/8 inch from the bolt face. I think you are thinking about the (extractor) that is on the side of the bolt being heal with a solid pin. The ejector is held with a roll pin.

Maybe I am missing something but I can't find anything about removing the ejector from the ARs bolt at that link you posted . :(

Again it's the EJECTOR not the EXTRACTOR I want to remove.:rolleyes:

Here is a link to a tool used to work on AR bolts. You have to hold back the tension of the ejector spring while pushing out the pin. This tool makes it much easier.


Select Tools on the left side. I am talking about the second tool from the top
