    I was shooting sporting clays this past weekend before our annual dove hunt and ran into a problem. I shoot a K-80 RT with O/U barrels mostly for trap and as a result, don't often use the top barrel (I don't shoot doubles). While shooting clays, I noticed that the top barrel extractor did not always properly extract the spent shell. Normally, I shoot the top barrel so infrequently that it's not worth my concern but over a 100-round clays course, it became an annoyance. What would normally be the cause and fix for a failure to extract? Thanks for your help.

    Remove the extractor, clean it and oil it.

    Also, check the forward(muzzle)end of the extractor for any damage that might cause the cocking rod to not push the extractor properly.

    If you have a damaged exractor PM me back. I have an extra one I`ll give you. You pay shipping only.

    Gold, Rebel,

    I took it out today and had a fellow Krieghoff shooter much more knowledgeable than me take a look. Basically, the cocking rod for the over barrel is not consistently engaging the ejector hammer in the forend. Therefore, the ejector isn't being driven back on opening. When I open the gun, half the time the over ejector isn't under spring tension. Also, note that my gun is an RT. I didn't realize just how different they are internally than a standard K-80.

    Thanks for your help.

    Joe

    If the barrels are not properly fitted to the gun then ejectors can be a common problem. Barrel fitting involves fitting the forend lug to the receiver as well as the trunions and the sliding hood..... Also, over time, the barrel forend lug can wear. This is a critical point for lube when assembling the gun in order to prevent wear over the years.
