Rance - SASS # 54090 Posted June 20, 2011 Share Posted June 20, 2011 I've been having a little problem ejecting rounds.. not many maybe 2 in 1000.. but thinking it's just gonna get worse..I started a thread here and got replies on how to check the extractor spring and fit a new one.. it was definitely weak.. ordered new one.. waiting for it to come in.. Sat. nite took the yellowboy apart for intense cleaning and polishing.. Took the bolt out and the extractor spring was weak.. very weak.. OK... I knocked out the pin and there was (I guess) 7 years of crud underneath the spring in the channel.. I clean this gun thouroughly about every 3-4 months.. minor cleaning in between.. but... I didn't know that there was a channel underneath the extractor to clean.. dumb on my part I know but I'm still learning.. Question: under normal cleaning.. should I gently pry up on the ejector (maybe with a small screw driver) and spray brake cleaner in there to blast out the crud?? Doesn't seem like I should have to pull the bolt and take it apart at every cleaning.. but this needs attention... BTW.. after cleaning out the crud in the channel, I put it back together... The ejector seems as tight as brand new again.. I'm tempted to put it back together and try it but I think I'll just wait for the new ejector.. Rance thinkin' I'm still learnin' Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
