That part in the owner's manual exploded parts diagram is for the .22 magnum. It looks like part #42 listed as Ejector; Magnum. The ejector in the .22LR is part #18 in the parts manual, magazine latch/ejector. Really hard to see in the exploded diagram as it is shown mounted to the magazine guide.
Everyone, JetBlack, Gunsrewguy, and Cowboy23 was correct. I took an empty .22LR cartridge case and loaded it into the chamber and cycled the bolt opening it slowly. Understand there is a some slop between the bolt handle and slot it travels in as you move it to the rear. I found that if I opened it while pressing it down against the bottom of the slot the case would not eject. It would barely make contact with the ejector and then ride up over the ejector. If I cycled the bolt and pressed the bolt up against the top of the slot it would eject every time.
I removed the stock and the screw holding down the front of the magazine guide. The guide pivots up on the mounting pin in the rear of guide bringing the ejector with it. I took a pair of pliers and gently tweaked the ejector more toward the center. I mean I tweaked it an almost imperceptible amount. I secured the magazine guide back in place, inserted the cartridge case and cycled the bolt. Now no matter where I hold the bolt handle, up against the top or down against the bottom of the slot, the case ejects every time. I will be taking the rifle to the range this afternoon and test it while shooting and rapidly cycling the bolt.
Thank you one and all.
