    Sounds like the ejector sear is worn. Jeff

    Thanks all. ( not you blade)
    It just returned from Kreighoff because it broke a hammer. . so I had them go through it.

    It seems that 15k precludes the use of Rio shells both in K and SS guns.... these guns are just too sensitive.

    Sometimes the forend lug (on bottom of barrels) can wear slightly after thousands of rounds. This will cause the ejectors to mis-fire. It can easily be corrected. If you are not lightly lubing the front notch in the forend lug as well as the backside of the forend lug as you assemble your gun prior to shooting, then you may eventually suffer the shame of forend lug wear. Likewise, if you are properly lubing the forend lug, you may never have a wear issue.

    Also, if you are using some barrels not professionally fitted to the gun (they seem to fit okay, but they really don't) the ejectors will work "hit and miss" until the forend lug on that particular set of barrels is properly fitted to the gun. This is a key step in the process of properly fitting barrels. I had the same problem of hit-and-miss ejector function on a gun I bought at Rock Island Auction. Tim Ward, a Krieghoff trained gunsmith in Brunswick, GA showed me what the problem was, and proceeded to repair it. He did a great job, by the way. (www.gunsmiths.com email: GTWARD@Gunsmithsinc.com 912-342-7063).

    Sometimes - not always - a set of barrels in need of further fitting will reveal a noticeable gap around the arc between the forend iron and the front of the receiver when the gun is closed. If you see a gun with that gap, be advised the barrels are not properly fitted to that receiver, even if they seem to work okay. Hope this helps....

    Mike
