Thanks for all the suggestions. To follow up:

Headspace checks good on this rifle - was one of the first things I did. Ejection is consistent around 4:00 a couple of yards away, which sort of leads me to think the gas system is okay (?).

The spring tube appears to be loose and not binding, lightly lubricated, but perhaps a different spring and/or tube may be in order to test.

Will pass on whatever I find out when I get it fixed.

Had same symptoms with my carbine. My problem was gunk in the firing pin channel such that the firing pin would not move freely. Cleaned well and all is well.
