I shot my older model BT-99 today for the first time in a couple of years and was puzzled by the fact the ejector would function only on every other shot. It would eject on the first shot and on the second it will only extract. If I close it again and pull the trigger on the empty, then the gun would eject that hull. Any info will be highly appreciated. JM

If it ehects at all, that's good. It's highly unlikely anything is broken. Sometimes the ejector trip rods become a little sloppy..fore and aft.

Your best bet is to pop the stock off and take a peek at the insides. The ejector trip rod must have a small bend in it. This prevents it from moving back into the receiver while cocking the gun.

A test you can try first is to point the gun directly at the floor and dry-fire it. The ejector should trip everytime...gravity holds it in place. Now point it straight at the ceiling or sky, dry fire it and open it...while still pointing up. As the gun opens and the hammer recocks, it possible for the trip rod to follow back into the receiver.

I have had success with the ejector trip rod needing to be re bent.

When the gun is fired, the trip rod's end sticks out of the receiver and fires the ejector.

The angle bend in the rod determines the OAL of the rod.

If it is not sticking out enough on firing, it will work erratically.

My solution was to put the trip rod in a vice and ever so gently squeeze the bend, making it a little shallower angle. this makes it effectively a little longer.

I have done this on 5 or 6 BT-99's and in each case the problem was solved.

Of course, previous notes here on dirt, binding etc are valid.
