Has anyone here done this ?
So I have a new 725 trap combo and want to extract rather than eject shells. Found a couple of articles in search but was hoping for a video. I see several different ways to do this.
Gun is still fairly stif to open so can’t stop with my hand. Also saw that spring is stiffer than it needs to be and causes ejector problems down the road.
Thanks.

How difficult is the change or removal of the Remington 3200 ejector springs?

Edit: Just did a little search of old threads. Appears the forend iron must be removed, but this only requires removal of one screw - correct? Then either replace or remove ejector springs - correct?

Thanks, Ed

yep, i have done this also, replace ejector springs with 1911 firing pin springs, but cut about 3 to 4 coils off the 1911 springs.
the work is real simple, should take less then 5 minutes, the forend iron might have a slight amount glue holding it tight to the wood still after removing the screw, a gentle tap near where the screw was with a plastic hammer freed up the iron when i removed mine fore the first time

Thanks Very Much! Really appreciate your guidance on this. Best Regards, Ed

I have converted a number of shotguns using Colt 1911 firing pin springs and it works fine, but be sure you buy the standard strength spring. I found that if I use a stronger spring I get a weak ejection and then you may be disassembling the forend a number of times before you get the spring trimmed to the right length.

Thank You Very Much for this good info tip. A good friend has 1911 springs. Best Regards, Ed

Thanks for your reply. I can only find one strength spring. No standard or heavy designation.

might be able to, but have fun fitting your hands in there Don't you disassemble your gun to clean it anyway.
Go for it, most of us enjoy turning a 5 minute job into 5 hours

On a Browning, I prefer to remove the ejector trip rods. Less wear on all parts involved as the hammers never get actuated. Take off the stock and remove the two retaining screws, very simple.

Trip rods and sears. Leave hammers free to push hulls higher.

You guys are talking about 2 different guns on the same Thread. Just a little confusing!

I took the ejector springs out of my 3200 twenty years ago.
