    If you don't want to premaritally modify this feature, you can change the ejector spring to a much weaker one. It's easy & inexpensive, you'll have the option to change it back later.

    Is it a difficult job to change to a lighter spring?

    This is what I did,

    Grab the barrel, push the ejector against a solid wood bench or similar, till the ejector retaining disk/button cleared the opening,

    Use a paper clip or magnet to pick the disk out, now the ejector is under full spring tension, slowly retract it out of the barrel.

    The ejector, spring, and it's pin is three piece deal, don't lose any of them.

    Replace a spring is easier than it sound.

    Good luck.

    Unfortunately you need the spring to keep the ejector in place from getting damaged.

    If you have absolutely no source to get correct springs, use a s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d ball pen spring, just stretch them longer than the original ej. spring. I had good luck with them, usually they last for years.

    Just remove the ejector rod. Very simple. The shell will extract but not eject thus allowing the spent shell casing or unfired shell to be removed from the chamberwith your fingers. You remove the ejector rod by first seperating the receiver from the stock. Pull out and back on the ejector rod to remove. Reassemble the stock and reciever and your ready to go. I wear a glove on both hands and found this to be the best way with out damaging springs. Post-2.

    Remove the spring and cut 4 or 5 coils from the existing spring and then reinstall
