    Before you do this, put some empties in the gun, close it, and open it WITHOUT snapping it. See how easy (or not) it is to remove the hulls before you do this.

    You can order another set of springs, and cut them so they barely push the hulls up to where they is easy to grab.

    Call Braxton at KI, he is a legend for customer service and care.

    Remove iron from forearm. Looking towards
    the rear of the iron at the “sear hammers”, there
    will be a hook looking part (one on each side)
    that locks back the sear hammers. These are
    called the “ejector sears”. They are held in place
    by a pressed in pin (one on each side) that also
    works as a pivot point. First, release the pressure
    on the sear hammer springs by unlatching the
    ejector sears. Second, with a small pin punch,
    drive out the pivot pins that retains the ejector
    sears. Third, package up the ejector sears, the
    pivot pins and the two little springs that are
    behind the ejector sears and store away carefully
    for if these parts are lost, the replacement ejector
    sears are two parts that will have to be
    professionally fitted. Now this is not totally
    necessary but something I prefer to do as one
    spring is normally enough to lift the empty or
    loaded shell. Remove one sear hammer spring
    from each side (there is a small pin on each side
    that has to be remove so that the ejector hammers
    can be removed. Reinstall the sear hammers
    with the one spring per unit and install the iron
    back into the forearm.
    Now, when the gun is opened, both ejectors
    will lift the empty/loaded shells to full height.
    This is the best way to turn your ejectors into
    extractors bar none. I have shot my K-80 with
    this modification for 12 years and I would have
    it no other way. As a gun club manager, the
    more shooters that will manually remove
    shells and pocket them, the happier I am!

    Does anyone know if something similar can be done to a 101 Diamond grade? Thanks, Gary B.
