    I have seen multiple posts regarding lubrication of the hinge pins,etc. What do lubricate your ejectors with and how often do you remove them for cleaning and lubrication?

    Have no clue how to remove the ejectors from my Browning o/u and it's been 40 years since I got it. I clean the ejector plates with a spray of brake cleaner once a year or so and then use a couple of drops of Tri-Flow or the like in the channels the plates ride in. Never had a problem and don't expect one.

    Could be because it's a Belgium Browning Broadway not the Citori line.

    TinMan88- You described a good method. If you want to get more sophisticated, ATF is as good as motor oil. Also, the transmission fluid has, in my opinion, a prettier color than motor oil.

    I put a drop of oil (or Breakfree CLP) on the inside surface of each ejector about every 200 rounds or so. I can't remember the last time I removed the ejectors for cleaning. I'm sure it has been 2 or 3 years (at least).

    If you don't want to remove the ejectors but still want to clean them, just stand the chamber end of the barrels in a container of kerosene or mineral spirits. Slosh it around for a few minutes, then dry off and lubricate. VOILA.

    Remove my K80 injectors about twice a year, clean, then lube with Kreighoff grease. Also remove the aluminum plug in the unsingle barrel and clean, then lube it with Kreighoff grease to control electrolysis of aluminum on steel.
