    Can anyone explain the ejector timing process on a Beretta? I have a barrel that fires the bottom ejector to early and the hull hits the face of the reciever. Can I adjust the current ejector or does firing too early require the ejector pad be welded.

    Will removing material from the ejector tail make the ejector fire earlier or latter?

    Thanks in advance.

    Coles Gunsmithing up in Maine can answer your question.

    Before you do anything mechanical to the gun, put a couple of empties in the gun and release both hammers.

    Firmly grasp the forend and barrel and squeeze them together with one hand. Open the gun while the forend and barrel are pressed together.

    If your ejector timing changes, the forend lug needs to be tightened up.

    If it does not change, put the empties back in the gun and snap both barrels again.

    This time, use fingers and thumbs to pull forend and barrel apart. Open gun while doing this. If ejector timing changes, something used as a spacer can correct your ejector timing.

    If neither test changes your ejector timing or if squeezing the forend and barrel together does correct the timing, I would send it to Cole's Gunsmithing for repair.

    FYI. This is a new barrel and the ejectors need timing. Forearm is tight. Anyone know the procedure for grinding the ejector tail? Does removing material make the ejector fire sooner or later?

    Thanks

    Ah, more info. Adding barrels often causes this.

    I would send the gun to Cole's.

    Removing material will cause the ejectors to trip sooner. It appears your is tripping to soon already, so removing any amount from the tail(s) will cause it to trip even faster.

    I find it very odd that the ejector is tripping too soon with a brand new bbl. The ejector tails tend to be extra long for timing AFTER the CORRECT fitting of the bbl.

    I also agree with Shooting Coach, Berettas are very finicky with the ejector timing. The wood really likes to influence them.
