    Would like to fix both my BT-99 & Citori so they don't eject the spent casings. Is this something I can do myself? If so, how do I do it?
    Thanks, Alan

    Bear with me, the pics are out of order and a bit confusing. First you must find some weaker springs to replace the current springs. The springs must be strong enough to lift the shell but not so strong to eject it. Just removing the spring doesnt allow the shell to sit high enough for easy shell removal. I found my springs at the hardware store under the storm door repair section. Be for warned that these springs will wear out rather quickly and rust up more than OEM springs. they also tend to break. I no longer use this method for this reason. BUT this is what I did. 1. remove the forearm 2 remove the ejector hammer assembly. trip the ejector hammer with a small pick. You will see the trip cam looking at the face of the assembly(surface that rides on receiver) Watch your fingers. Once released it will be easier to pull back the small rod that the spring fits over. Once it is removed your weaker springs can be installed. CAREFULL re install all parts in the same place. On my XT the screws holding the hammer assembly to the for end are different lengths. I stretched out the replacement springs until I got the right lift out of them. Email for questions if it may help. Its not that hard. You may want to buy a few cheap screw drivers and grind and bend to use as leverage tools.

    by no means a gun smith, but really losing them around here, I do not trust any one right now locally. So, I have had to learn to do a lot of things myself.

    I remove the ejection rods. Quick and easy. Take off the stock, remove the rod (s) reinstall stock. It will then extract the shell but not eject. Same with Perazzi. Post-2
