Default ISO: Rem 121 Ejector Plunger Assy

Iíve rang all of the normal bells, ebay, Numrich, Wisnerís, GB, but these seem to be henís teeth. Short of buying a parts rifle (which likely ALSO has a broken plunger assy), Iím taking a long shot here.

I may end up reverting it to a 12 style spring rather than the plunger design of the updated 121, but would obviously prefer to stay original.

Anyone have a line on one?

Midway USA is pretty good when it comes to parts.

It's surprising that you're having so much trouble finding a part for a Remington.

I buy a few thousand dollars in parts from Midway each year, but theyíre not great for this kind of resto-repair. Theyíre great if youíre doing basic work or building an AR or 10/22, but Midway gave up 10yrs ago or more on really supporting gunsmithing efforts, and they arenít a warehouser for obscure or obsolete take-off parts, which havenít been made in ~3/4 century.

It hasnít been made for 75yrs, and this particular part is notorious for breaking - they sell out quickly when they come available, aka, when someone gives up a rifle to a gun buyback and a parts reseller finally has access to them. Lots of folks waiting for them, and not many available.

Novel idea, but less than ideal, and less than ideally executed. The ejector plunger assy has thin mounting flange around the tubular body through which a retaining screw fixes it to the receiver - but this flange is prone to breaking, such replacements are exceptionally difficult to find.

The repair is pretty simple - longer retaining screw and a notched washer, reamed to fit the housing. But itís not factory original...
