    Is anyone here aware of a common modification that allows for the conversion of the ejectors on a Beretta 686 to be converted to extractors? I don't want anyone grinding on my new shotgun, but I am interested if it only involves part changes like springs and such. If it is a common change, then I bet someone here knows about it. Educate me please.

    I have a Beretta 686 & 682. On each of these trap gun I replaced the original ejector spring with a lighter one. Now, when I open the gun the empty only pops up a little, It does not clear the breach making it easy to retrieve.


    The approximate dimensions of the springs is:


    OD .062

    ID .021

    Over all length 3.050

    Wire diameter .019


    Go to your local gun smith, he may/may not have a spring meeting these dimensions.

    I bought the parts from Cole's; it is cheap and easy to switch back to ejectors. I have a 682.

    I cut the ejector springs flush with the barrel. Bill Malcolm

    Here is the answer I got from Cole Gunsmithing..

    We will have to modify your forend levers, unfortunately it is not as easy as changing a few parts. the cost for this is approx 45.00 and all we will need your forend only.

    She means they grind new levers and install them which eleminates ejection. If you don't want your gun idle, just have them modify a pair of levers and send them to you. They are not difficult to install; however, $45 installed is cheap and you don't have to hassle with very small springs that tend to jump all over the room...
