    I've noticed the ejectors on my 68x don't snap with enough pop to send the empty clear of the chambers. Usually it's not a problem because I save the empties to reload or deposit in trash.

    I'm guessing new springs ejector springs are needed. Any other ideas?

    I cut my springs down so they don't pop, easier on the ejectors.

    Yes new springs are in order. With everyting correct, the ejectors should pop a pair of hulls out over your shoulder landing about 10 feet behind you.

    I for one cut two coils off of my springs because it came out with such a force it hurt my fingers when I caught the empties. It still ejects the but without a lot of force. Before I cut the springs it would throw the hulls about 15 feet.

    When I was shooting a 682, I pulled the ejectors once a year and cleaned all the crud that built up behind the spring plungers and around the springs. After a couple of years the springs wore a flat spot on their sides so I would replace them, it's easy to do.

    what I meant about cutting the springs down is that new springs are hard on the ejectors when they pop with a lot of force....on several occasions I have seen a shooters ejector break during an ATA shoot and they are pretty much done for the day.

    If they fire a little lighter they will last a life time, I reload, so I cut my springs down and remove the hulls as if is an extractor.
