    Warning, do this at your own risk. I'm not responsible for any damage you do to your gun. You might want a qualified gunsmith to make these changes.

    SKB ejectors are timed by filing on the hooked tips (the flat surfaces facing down on the fore end facing ends of the ejectors).

    There is a catch mechanism in the fore end. If these hooks are left too long, the hooks won't escape the catch and the ejectors won't eject, they will just rise to the level normally seen when the gun is cocked but not fired. When these hooks are just the right length, they rise to that level, and as the gun just comes fully open, they escape the catch and eject the shells. If the hooks are too short, then the ejectors never catch and just rise to the full height as the gun opens. Both too long and too short hooks give the effect of an extractor, long hooks make a short extractor, short hooks make a long extractor.

    Now, a "conversion" like this is not reversable (assuming you go for the long extraction). You will have to replace the ejectors to go back to ejection. You would most likely have to buy and fit new ejectors to get the short extraction.
