    My wife hates to eject her empty shells over her shoulder and she is not quite coordinated enough to catch them. Is it possible to convert a Beretta 680 series barrel to an extract mode of operation rather than an eject mode on her unsingle barrel
    I have looked to see if I can simply remove the ejector spring and consulted a schematic but I can not see how the ejector slide is removed so that i can get to the spring and remove it, assuming that this will do the job.

    Can anyone help me with this?
    Thanks,
    Doug

    To remove your Ejector:

    1) Push in until the key aligns with the slot.

    2) Rotate the Ejector until the key clears the slot. (Be careful as the spring will likely launch at you)

    Reverse that process to reinstall. This procedure is in the manual for your gun.


    Once you have the Ejector and spring out, you can cut some coils off the spring to weaken it. Cut one or two coils at a time until the spring is just strong enough to lift the shells without launching them.

    If you simply remove the springs the Ejectors won't work at all and you will have trouble assembling your gun.

    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.

    you can do as suggested and whack off a couple coils on the spring - that will give you weak ejectors
    (not extractors) If you want extractors the forearm levers need to be modified. Coles does this mod (I'm not sure what they charge - about $50 IIRC) to go back to ejectors the forearm levers will need to be replaced.

    I had Cole's modify and install a new pair of forearm levers on my 682 and it was $50 including the parts. It works very well.

    Go slow when you cut the springs. If you cut them too short, the extractors can fall off the barrel when you take the gun apart. No fun looking for parts in the grass at night. Good Luck

    why not learn to partially open the gun,then cover the empties with the right palm or 2 fingers,and continue opening with the left hand with the stock alongside the ribcage?

    if you do it right,you`ll never break a nail.

    just cut the end of the ejector off, then it will just raise
