    Have a nice 3200 that I would like to shoot occasionally, no updates. How do I dissengage the ejectors to extract only? Thanks

    Remove the fore end. Remove the fore end iron from the wood. Uncock the ejector hammers and remove the ejector hammer springs. Shorten the springs or replace the original springs with weaker springs. Reassemble unit. HMB

    I replaced my springs with 1911 firing pin springs.Bought at Brownells. Very soft and easy to close. Lifts ejectors nicely to remove hulls.

    remove the forearm,Inside you'll see a small screw up front that you can remove. Then there is a small nut with a slot in it, You'll have to modify an old screwdriver to fit in the slot (screw is in the center)remove nut, Now you can remove the wood. Not difficult just take your time.

    I did this fix to several 3200s in the other century and I removed the spring assemblies and just left the gun that way. It still extracts perfectly without the springs....Bob Dodd

    Bob Dodd has it right and I don't think you have to remove the nut with a slotted screw in it. It is for adjusting the fit of the forend metal to the receiver.

    As Bob says, simply removing the spring assemblies will alllow the ejectors to act as pure extractors. No springs/rods necessary. But you do have to unscrew the slotted screw to remove the assembly from the wood, as this screw holds the rear part of internal plate to the outside (bottom) plate, as well as being used to adjust the fit.
