how do you set the ejectors on a Browning Superposed to either eject or extract? I have one barrel ejecting, and the other extracting.
Looking at manuals for Browning Superposed
Is the barrel that is just extracting doing so with an unfires shell?
right, unfired shells. I shot it this morning. I recall the bottom barrel flings the expended shell right out and onto the ground, while the top barrel leaves the expended shell in the barrel, partially lifted out of the barrel.
oh, sorry. fired shells. my bad
Superposed shotguns are designed to extract unfired shells & eject fired shells. It seems that since it is not ejecting fired shells that there might be more going on that just setting the extractors. If you know the history of the gun & know that someone altered the top barrel to extract only and not the bottom then I recomend seeing a high;y qualified gunsmoith or the factory.
Con't--- if you don;t know the history of the gun, my first step would be a VERY thorough cleaning by a gunsmith, that will take the gun completly down to parts and clean & inspect. They are very hearty guns, in my expirance it is usually taken care of with a good cleaning.
OK. I don't know the previous owner. Just bought it at a pawn shop. And, the guy at the range also recommended to get it cleaned. So, maybe that's the next step. I assume any quality local gunsmith could do that - not necessary to send into Browning?
Correct, as long as they will take it completely apart & check the ejectors & extractors. I find sometimes over a few years oil (particularly WD40) turns to a gooey or hardened substance that will slow down how the mechanical parts are supposed to work. So you want someone that will really clean it & not just spray it out with gun scrubber or something.
Awesome, thank you
Best of luck & Superposeds are GREAT guns. I love mine. Good Shooting.
you too - thanks again
