    No tricks involved, remove stock, trigger assembly, and grab the L section of the trip rod with needle nose pliers and pull out.

    Many times the back of the rods are staked in place with one or two center punches on the receiver metal.

    You can easily push them out from the front of the receiver with a small punch.

    When I reinsert them or a replacement, I never restake them. I have yet to see one fall out. Pretty darn hard to have that happen, if you inderstand how they function in relationship to the hammers.

    WHEN YOU REINSERT THEM, USE SOME OIL.

    I don't understand ejector timing but I know that the bend in the trip rod is for a reason so don't try to straighten it. My usual trigger on my MX3 Doubles gun will eject both empties at the same time but the spare trigger ejects one empty at a noticeably different time than the other.

    I use the wooden handle on a small cleaning brush to place under the "L" tip of the rod and then use somewhere on the receiver as a fulcrum to pry it out. No chance to damage anything.

    Timing is kind of a misnomer on the Perazzi's.

    The timing really had to do with the overall length of the rod. The tip of the rod has a flat on its top front. This flat "trips" part number 308 (Right Ejector Sear), and/or 317 (Left Ejector Sear), which in turn, and because the forward end of the sear in the forearm is then moved down, and this releases the actual ejector(s) 203 & 204 letting them "pop" back.

    The "timing" issue is such that you don't want the ejector being tripped before the barrel is opened enough which would cause the hull to smack the receiver face, and conversely so if the rods' ends are worn, no ejection occurs, only a lifting happens... and some prefer lift over ejection.

    When the ejector rods (or their respective sears) are worn to a point, they will not eject at all. And, on some occasions, with the installation of a new rod the hulls may eject too soon. One may need to hone off a few thousandths on the rod's forward tip - carefully!

    Usually a new rod will cure the problem, but I have replaced some sears here in the shop too; a rarity, however.

    Question for you who know - do the rods normally have a slight bow to them to keep them from sliding out?

    TM1 rods were bowed, but that probably had more to do with the flat spot machined on them.

    The new Perazzi rods I have here are not bowed, at least I sure can't see any bow in/on them. They won't fall out anyway. The hammer's side groove should keep them in at least that far.
