    Many years back I seen a guy shooting a Win. 101 at station 1 Skeet. It was a night shoot. He was shooting .410. He shot the high and low. Pulled out the empties along with the extractor and did not notice it. He stuck the empties in his vest pulled two new .410 and dropped them it. The gun split at the receiver and cracked the forend. SO I WOULD NOT DO IT. If any of you remember South Coast Gun Club in Orange County Ca.

    Think about how much of the case the ejector actually supports. The shotgun hull is not strong at all. The brass or steel is paper thin.

    NOPE!

    I knew a guy who shot a 686 w/ out an ejector for awhile. Didn't seem like a good idea then, and doesn't know. I know I wouldn't do it on my gun. Even ejectors for the most expensive competition guns don't cost enough to warrant risking a catastrophic failure.

    BTW, if you still have all the pieces, it can most likely be tig welded and refit until a suitable replacement can be found (contact Paul Martin at Progun in Victor, NY if you can't find anyone else (585) 924-1733. He welded an ejector for a remington peerless for my dad in a pinch when he couldn't get a new ejector from remington quickly enough).

    A few thousanths of steel or brass and a 16th inch of plastic can not contain 10-12 thousand PSI.

    shooting without an extractor is a Darwin application.

    On guns similar to the K-80, Remington 3200, etc. you can disable the ejector hammers in the fore end. This will allow the gun to just lift the shell up when you open the gun and you can take the empties out with your fingers. HMB
