    My 90T will not extract or eject cheaper hulls with a steel base. It does fine with brass base hulls. I went to the cheaper hulls becasue the time spent reloading the better hulls (Remington & Winchester) was not worth the slight advantage in expense.

    I must tell you I changed the 90T to extract and when the hulls wouldn't extract I converted the gun back to eject. It ejected two stell hulls and stopped ejecting the steel base hulls. When I went back to the brass base hulls, they ejected perfectly.

    Do I need to replace a spring? If so, what strength? Is it something I can do myself, or should I have a gunsmith do this? Is there something else I should do?

    Thanks,

    Polishing the chamber might be a fix, but great care must be used to not enlarge the chamber.

    When I got mine it would not eject any of my reloads. I had to reset the collet, sizing down to .805" instead of the usual .809". Anything above .807 sticks. So far I have resisted the temptation to grind out the chamber. It will become worn soon enough.

    My 90T has same problem. When Doug Braker does a Teflon finish on mine he will also ensure the chamber is at SAMMI specs. The following is from an e-mail that Doug sent me.

    Some of the 90-t's did have tighter chambers. I can open them up, but no more than the SAAMI specs. That measurement is .815". 90-T's are not the only guns that have this kind of problem.

    I have a well worn 90T that I use as a back up to my other 90T. To make a long story short, it was doing the same thing. I could feel a groove just inside the chamber, this was either caused by not keeping the chamber clean or just too many shells. I sent it back to Kolar and they rechambered it. John

    Thats the big Problem with steel based shells. I have seen it happen with Krieghoffs, Brownings, Perazzi's and all brands of shells using steel based shells. Thats pumps and breakopens. I have not heard or seen problems from Auto's but that doesn't make it that they don't have problems.

    I will tell you what Chris Maest of Krieghoff told me. "You don't use cheap shells in good guns".

    Another reason I reload. Brass based STS with promo and clone components. Cheap or I should say cheaper that factory STS to reload and they fly out everytime.

    Terry, try waiting about a 3 count before opening the breech. Most brands of guns with spring ejectors have this problem and the delayed opening works for many.
