    Have a BT 100 that will lift the shells out after firing, but when I turn the screw to have them eject out of the gun it will not function. Any ideas?

    Thank you

    Can be caused by any number of things:

    1. Ejector Trip Rod (inside the receiver) worn, broken, or stuck.
    2. Ejector Sear (inside the forearm iron) worn, broken, or stuck.
    3. Ejector Hammer (inside the forearm) broken or not being cocked and held by the Ejector Sear.
    4. Ejector Hammer Spring (inside the forearm) broken, weak, or missing.
    5. Ejector or Ejector Extension (on the side of the monoblock) broken.
    6. Previous owner (if applicable) deactivated the ejector function.
    7. And a few other possibilities . . .

    Is the Ejector Hammer (inside the forearm) cocking correctly, but isn't being tripped upon opening the gun after firing (or after dry firing)?
    Or, does the Ejector Hammer not remain cocked at all?

    The gun was taken out of the box for the first time since 1996. The ejector trip rod seems to be sticking inside the receiver. I hope that is the problem. If I would need parts do you know where I might get them? Arts gun repair has none. Don't know about browning do you have any other ideas for parts?

    Thank you for all your help

    Got it fixed. Just needed to be lubricated ( the rod ). Do you know where parts for the BT-100 can be found just in case.

    Thanks for all your help
