I have a few Remington 513-T rifles and have seen this same problem on some of them. I think that the problem could be with the bolt itself. If you look at the bottom of the bolt (when handle is up and ready to draw bolt back) you might see a small chip at the end of the groove on the bolt where it connects with the sear. That may be causing the bolt to skip over the sear and pull out of the receiver.

On rifles that have that problem, the only solution I have found is to be careful when ejecting the spent shell. Only pull the bolt back lightly, and don't force it with all your might.

Bolts can be switched out with another 513T to see if the problem (of pulling out) repeats, but don't actually fire any shells with the bolt from another rifle unless you check the head space. I have found that some bolts will function mechanically, but fail to fire when switched to another rifle. Also, you might experience blow back from a poorly headspaced bolt.

If your bolt itself is the problem, I do not know if it can be repaired or will have to be replaced. You might ask one of the CMP armorers about it.

Had the same problem. Exchanged the bolt with CMP. Took awhile as they had to find similar one to give good head space.

Here is a link to a Parts List and Operating Instructions for the Remington 513T:


Remington also has original manuals for many of its firearms available at no cost. Simply download them. Here is a link:

Interesting thread. I have an old Remington Model 512 with the same issue described above. When I remove the bolt from the 512 and insert it in my 513, everything works fine. On the other hand, when I insert the 513 bolt into the 512, it consistently comes out when ejecting a cartridge, which indicates it likely isn't a faulty bolt .
I think I'll explore the bent ejector issue as described by bobk in a previous post.
