    Dear Nipper

    I have never seen Citori ejector springs NEED replacing.

    It is easily done, but remember, you are dealing with two pieces of metal that can put your eyes out.

    As long as the ejectors are working properly, I would leave them alone.

    Often, sluggish ejection is caused by dirt and grease in the barrel's ejector channels. Use of a good degreaser, compressed air, and proper lube will usually get the "snap" back in your ejectors.

    A fellow shooter assures me he can remove some plastic build in the chamber that i cant "see" and i will give them a good cleaning as well,they function ok,they just seem a little weak,will report back after a good cleaning.

    If you bought the gun used, the ejector springs might have been replaced by a previous owner with weaker springs to prevent full ejection. Just something to be aware of and check.

    coach,
