FN Patrol Bolt Rifle Problems

Brother bought an FN PBR at an auction. Rifle looked new condition. Very nice Mc stock ,.308 heavy 20 in barrel , mounts installed etc. Went to the range to start load work-up. Rifle shot great , but it wouldn't eject. Further examination showed the ejector does not ride in the slot cut in the bolt. Rides just under bolt, outside of the slot , so it does not strike the case base when bolt it retracted. Looked at a pre64 Win and another FN PBR , both of which the ejector rides in the slot in the bolt. WTF , sent a Email to FN customer service , but have not received a reply yet. Was talking to my gunsmith , and he related some "horror stories" about turned down Mag58 chrome lined barrels being used in bolt rifles , set back bolt faces etc etc.. Say it ain't so, FN has an international reputation to maintain .I've used many of their products in the past with 0 problems. Have I been in a vaccum?? Any suggestions or info will be appreciated.
