Does anyone know if it is difficult to disable the ejectors on my early 20ga. Citori? Is this something I can do myself???
The ejectors don't kick out the empties until the gun is about 99% of the way open. Therefore, it is a very simple task (once you have practiced it a few times) to begin opening the gun with both hands, but before the gun is completely open, just place your right hand about 2" behind the chambers and catch the empties before they completely leave the chambers.AlwaysLearning said:When you say block, do you just put your hand in the way of them ejecting? Close enough to keep them in the chambers or farther out, a sort of catch them in the air type motion.
Must depend on the gun. I've been removing unfired shells from the gun for years (it's mainly a field gun) and never had a problem with gloves or fingers getting cut.The sharp edges of the extractor/ejector will catch on gloves or finger tips and cut them. It's easier to leave them alone and catch the empties in your hand as already described.
Oh come on now, you can cut yourself shaving or opening a tin can easier that cutting your finger removing a expended shell from an extractor! In fact, you would have to try pretty darn hard to cut yourself, Ive been shooting an extractor model for 10 years without a single cut! Maybe Im just lucky!albanygun said:The problem with extractors is getting the shell out. The sharp edges of the extractor/ejector will catch on gloves or finger tips and cut them.
