If ejector guns could be bought at exactly the same price, and were just as common, as extractor guns, I wonder how many of us would still show a genuine preference for extractors? I suspect the number would be reduced some!

Given the way some posters here hunt (or don't hunt!), I can certainly appreciate that ejectors may not be worth the premium they command, and that's fine with me. But the fact that they always add a grand or more to the asking price of a pommie double (not sure about the modern stuff), speaks volumes about their actual worth IMO.

I would guess that most of us buy used doubles on an opportunity basis, so the relatively lower representation of ejectors in the market-place, coupled with the need to justify a purchase, will ensure this debate remains a lively one!

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
BTW, has anyone tried the 'Boddington method' of tipping the open extractor-gun 'over and out' to dump out the fired cases? What a stuff-up, throws the gun out-of-line and the shooter off-balance, and ends up with a scramble to get the new cartridges chambered. A smooth mount is then out of the question, the LAST thing you'd want in a tricky spot with DG!

Bit like holding a pair of cartridges between the fingers of the forward hand. Sounds great on paper, even works OK at the club, but in the shooting field on DG...? Please!
