    Have a Beretta O/U (ASE Gold Trap),...I find the upper ejector sticking. It will stay down and then 'pop' with a little tap from my finger or a shell.

    And, also when gun is fully opened the shell will not eject, then eject when gun starts to close.....seems to stick more on hotter days.....guns ejects normally maybe 5 times out of 100.

    Any hints before I head to a gunsmith.

    Cheap shells? common problem with some of the cheap shells in many guns- they get "stuck"

    Second if the ejectors do that with Reminton STS or new Winchester AAs spray ejectors several times with brake cleaner-

    Then when dry- spray with Rem Oil

    Then blot off

    Gene,

    I don't think its the shells, bottom barrel ejects all the times.

    I wonder if a really tight forend may have anything to do with the problem? or timeing or grit, or ????

    Seems obvious but have you cleaned the ejectors?

    I pull the ejectors out of my 682 about every 1000 shells and clean them. If you've never done this that's probably your problem.

    Mine are easy to remove. With the barrel removed of course I simply push down on one and twist it out of the channel it rides in and lightly release the spring pressure off being careful not to let the spring shoot off. I don't know if yours are exactly the same or not but if they've never been cleaned I would certainly start there.

    It could still be the shells

    I have several guns that the cheap shells function worse in one barrel or tube than the other

    Not saying it is though and thats why I suggested at least spraying the ejectors with brake cleaner and reoiling

    There is a youtube piece on how to remove the ejectors; it is very simple and takes about 10 seconds. They ride in a channel and have a tang that will allow them to be tipped out when aligned with the slot on the barrel channel. As stated previously be careful because the spring will "launch". Give them a good cleaning and oil the channels; I use 90 weight hypoid.

    The ejectors start getting gummy on my DT after about 40,000 Top Guns.

    I blast it with brake parts cleaner and then compressed air, a drop of light oil and then compressed air again. Voila.

    hi gamba, if the shell ejects when you slightly start to close the gun it is a timing problem. this would also explaine the problem getting worse when hot. the metal expands when heated and futher closes the tolerances. easy fix for the gunsmith. doug hubbart (573) 286-9905

    Doug,

    I was assuming a timing problem,...how does a gun/ejectors lose its timing ?

    Also, what would a gunsmith do to correct timing ?

    Thanks

    Your ejector springs could be getting worn out. Either replace them yourself or have them replaced. I had the same issue on a 686 where one shell would eject but the other would hang up and pop out a few seconds later. Cleaning the ejectors up and replacing the springs will fix that.

    You can buy ejector springs in a kit right here on trapshooters.com.

    I had the same problem on my DT-10. The ejectors needed to be retimed.

    I'm having that problem now with my SV10 Prevail. When I open the gun, the bottom would eject, but the top won't. If I close it just a bit, the top will then eject.

    Is this also a timing problem?

    hi gamba, simple ware and tare. just like a engine tolerances ware as the engine runs, or door on the refig gets sloppy as it is used over the years the ejector in you bbl is wareing in the dove tail slot in the mono block, the ejector sear is wearing on the ejector and sear each time the ejector functions, and the round knob in the reciever is wareing on the ejector sear each time the gun is cocked. this takes lots of cycles to get to the point where the sear starts to hang but over time it happens. best bet is to get it to a beretta guy to find the part or parts that are worn and in need of repair. doug hubbart

    Doug,

    Gun hasn't been shot all that much, gun is virtually new, not much wear/tear.....will have a smith look at it soon.

    Thanks
