I'm not an expert on I.J.'s, I'm here looking for answers myself, but to my knowledge, older doubles and o/u's didn't have ejectors unless it was a reputable name brand and would be a more expencive model. I can't prove it true, but this what I was told by a few local old timers, they have more experience then me, I don't have much choice too believe it until found wrong.
Almost impossible to say without having the gun in hand. The two most likely reasons are that parts are dirty, or parts are worn/broken. I would start with a thorough cleaning, with special attention to the chamber, bolt, and extractor/ejector. If that does not cure the problem. look for wear or breakage of the extractor/ejector.
Stevens Crackshot #16 sidelever does indeed have a crecsent shaped ejector that fits in the recess in the bottom of the chamber.It is operated when the lever is worked although I don't think they were a very good system and you probably end up levering as many spent shells out with a pocketknife as it ejects properly. NOTE: The Stevens # 16 has an extractor,which partially removes the spent shell from the chamber,rather than an ejector, which completely expells the spent shell from the chamber. Does anyone know a good source for these extractors??? HG
There are several reasons. If it extracts them, but doesn't eject, it could be the ejector is missing or broken/worn. If it doesn't even extract them, then the extractor is the culprit. Sometimes dirt can get under the extractor, and hold it from capturing the rim of the cartridge, so be sure to thoroughly clean the gun, before replacing any parts!
Is the shell still seated in the chamber and not attached to the bolt as it comes back?The extractor may be broken or bent or worn.Look at the spent shell, are there marks that look like the extractor grabbed the shell but couldn't pull it out?It could be a magazine issue. Is the spent shell hitting the shells in the magazine as the bolt comes back?Check the next shell in the mag for marks.Is the shell attached to the bolt but not kicking out the port?The ejector is bent or broken or worn.Is the bolt not coming back far enough to eject the shell?Check the gas valve and system.Does it only happen with one kind of ammo?
