    Take out the extractor and remove the spring behind it.

    The extractor twists out if it is in the right position.

    I would suggest you shorten the spring under the ejector. I cut mine flush with the barrel. This lowers the tension on the ejector and they don't pop the hull out as hard or as far. It also will help with the life expectancy of the ejector.

    If this is not satisfactory you need to file the front end of the ejector where it slides up over the forend iron. If you take the wood off the forend iron and put it onto the gun, you will see how the system works. Bill Malcolm

    Will this work on a DT-10? If so, what is the procedure for removing the ejectors?

    Shortening the springs will not change the ejectors into extractors. Shortening the springs will only decrease the amount of force that the hull is ejected with. Most people find that shortening the springs will suit them as opposed to altering the gun to make it extract. New springs were $1.95, if you don't like the change. Bill Malcolm

    removing the springs does not work, the ejector can fall flush with the barrel while it is open and when you close it it will get caught on the reciever....

    I think I will shorten the spring, less spring tention will work for me.

    weaker springs, just enough to lift shell. I found mine of all places for my XT. Screen door repair section of hardware store.

    The weakening of the springs is the better option. Any other mod is permenent. Altering the ejectors or the sears will require new parts to be fitted if you or some one else decides to have the gun eject.
