    John, KS-5s with an extractor like yours can be converter to ejector guns. If the square extension on the rear of the bottom of the monobloc has a slot in it running left-to-right, you're in luck and the conversion will only require a few pieces of hardware. If not, that slot will have to machined into the monobloc first. I believe your extractor can be reused as an ejector and you would only need the plate that goes in that slot, a couple of screws and perhaps a spring or two. Krieghoff International can give you the exact info as well as a cost to make the conversion.

    My first KS-5 was a Scroll Arabesque grade extractor gun without the slot (most guns from the first year or so of production were like that). While I forget what I was quoted to convert it to an ejector, I recall it was more than the feature was worth to me.

    Rebel; lot's more flexible without the ejector, I doubt you'll find the cost worth the conversion like Sir Clapper hinted at above....breakemall....Bob Dodd
