    I have several BT 99s that I would like to change from ejector to extractor. Can I just remove the spring in the forearm? Thanks Mark

    Yes but replace the factory forearm spring with Colt 1911 .45 firing pin spring.
    On my guns it will still raise a loaded shell for easy removal and after
    firing will pop the empty up but not from the chamber.
    Rastoff who posts here brought this method to my attention and it works slick!.

    I second the 1911 spring I did it to my citori and works like a charm.

    I third the 1911 spring trick. I did it to my 525 Sporting and my BT99 Max. Both pop up the empty but do not clear the chamber. Couldn't work better or easier. Darryl
