    Hello, The left ejector will trip on my Perazzi when opening the gun....with the hammers still cocked. In other words just opening and closing the gun with out dropping the hammers will cause the left ejector to trip. Anyone able to help out with a fix?

    Any help is appreciated,

    Fritz

    Your ejector trip rod is not retracting for some reason, or something in the forearm. Read on...

    Remove the stock and look to see if the bent (90 degree) end of the ejector trip rod is sitting IN FRONT of the LH hammer. Also, when fired, the ejector trip rod is pushed forward by the LH hammer, and that "push" is what forces the rod end out the front of the receiver. The small part sticking out the front, then "fires" the ejector sear in the forearm. Once the gun is opened, the ejector trip rod is normally pushed back to the rear in the receiver.

    You could have: (1) a stuck ejector trip rod, and/or (2) a worn ejector trip/sear #317 in the forearm, or (3) a failed forearm ejector sear trip coil spring #309. And, if someone has worked on the forearm, they may have not knowingly launched the ejector sear plunger #313.

    Pull your stock off and be sure that the hammer is cocking. Just because you may hear a click when you pull the trigger, that click can be the other hammer dropping.
