    Enblock ejecting after 3 rounds

    Hello all just found this forum so I’m not sure if
    this has been covered. I have a late 44 made m1
    have owned it for appx 15 years. Started having
    problems with the trigger group dropping out when
    firing. I replaced the stock with a Fulton armory replacement
    that problem is cured but now after 3 or 4 rounds
    the enblock is ejecting. I use 150 grain 30-06 in it
    no reloads so not a hot round issue I don’t think
    any thoughts on where to look next would be appreciated

    Check your clip latch and the clip latch spring. My spring was two coils shy of a new spring, cost was 25 cents.

        Are you using USGI or commercial clips? If you're using commercially mfg'd clips get some USGI clips and see if the problem goes away. A LOT of the time, the retaining detents in the non-USGI clips are too shallow for the clip latch to get a positive purchase in them. Also, if the problem has only existed since the stock got replaced, there needs to be some wood relieved some where to prevent binding on the clip latch. That might be the first thing to explore.

          I’m not sure if they are commercial or USGI. I have alot
          of them whenever I see them at pawn or antique shops
          i buy them as I believe you can never have too many.
          I used to do re-enactments most of the time I’ve had
          it been mostly blanks going through it so just noticed
          when I started using live rounds. I replaced the stock
          because the original the wood was compressed around
          the trigger group and would come loose when firing blanks
          or live rounds. But I will check that also thanks

            Since it just started with new commercial stock it is possible that is the culprit
            The cut out for the clip latch is sometimes to small and needs enlarged ...…………….....

              I took the clip latch out today had some rust around the spring
              and inside where the clip latch sits. I ordered a clip latch and
              a spring kit. I will get that cleaned up and see what happens
              thanks for all the information

                don't throw away your other clip latch. In all my years of messing with garands I have never seen one worn out of spec. Don't keep throwing money at parts. Its easy to diagnose but you have to put alittle effort into it.

                  I agree with Orlando, after getting guns Smith putting $175 price tags on the issue I did tons of reading and bought a spring atvs gun show. The rifle never failed after that.
