    How do I a change a BT 99 with ejectors to extract. Yes I know I should be cool and catch the shot shells but I am old and slow. Is there any other way than replacing the kicker spring with a 1911 firing pin spring. Any help would be appreciated.

    Blkcloud, only the older ones had an ejector. Went to extractor only in the 90's. Wayne

    Yep, agree with Wayne, the ejectors imho really are a pain when it comes to trap shooting. i'm much prefer the extractor.

    Thanks guys, looks like the 1911 spring is the only way to go.

    I just took my spring out. It doesn't set the empty out very far though. You can pop it out with your finger pretty easily though.

    Just installed the 1911 spring in my BT99 and it did not have enough strength to kick the emptys up so I just started cutting coils of the origional spring until it was just right, works great now. Cut slow each spring can be different. If you ever need to go back to eject just machine a spacer to take up the space for the cut coils.

    note: when shortening springs,only cut 1/2 of a coil at a time.Be careful not to cut them too short.......Just a thought....maybe not a complete one,but a thought nonetheless.
