i purchased a m14 polytech at a gun show and went to shoot it today and it would not eject the shells. When i went to eject the shell the bolt came apart and i had to put it back in.

So, exactly what kind of help are you expecting?
Seems like you got everything sorted out.

Poly Tech M14's are notorious for having bad bolts. Check the M1 forum for a solution.

Ummm, I can tell you this.
You won't be able to access any warranty help for one of these rifles anymore and need to find a gunsmith skilled in the M14 type rifle and knowledgable of the Chinese versions quirks.
When you say you put the bolt back together, did you reinstall the ejector and spring and did you align the ejector correctly so it is not sticking in the tunnel?

Do you mean that the action did not cycle at all? If so, check the gas shutoff valve on the gas tube. The screwdriver slot should be up and down when rifle is level, (perpendicular to barrel).

No, I think he is talking about the op rod jumping out and off track, then reinserting it to connect with the bolt.
Sounds like you have some problems.
Check the gas valve and see if it is shut off or open. It is in the gas cylinder below the barrel in front of the wood.
