So, I recently bought an older 687 EELL that's in great shape overall. However, sometimes the ejector rods don't eject the shells (usually a delay) or snap all the way back into place, which can make it hard to close the action. I am assuming that this probably means the springs connecting to the ejector rods need to be replaced and are probably worn out with age. Is this common and something other people have had to deal with? Otherwise, it shoots and looks great!

What about them just being filthy?

Could be I guess. What should they be cleaned with? I assume the spring is probably what needs cleaning? I watched a video on how to remove them and think I can do that without breaking anything.

Hoppe’s would work or carb cleaner. You will need to consult someone else about whether the channel is lubed or kept dry like a firing pin channel. I can’t answer that.

Thanks. I suspect it should not be lubed but I bet the spring itself is extremely dirty or rusted. Will try to remove, inspect and clean.

I thoroughly cleaned and lubed the hole, spring and rod and it seems smoother and to have less friction. I guess we'll for sure next time I shoot it if it's ejecting properly. Thanks for the help!

Check the forearm levers. If they are loose or sloppy it can cause ejector issues. They should pivot freely, but they should have very little to no sideplay.

Ejector springs should be replaced occasionally, J&P Springs makes good replacement springs for the 68x series Berettas.
