Ejection issues and some of the most common causes

Every now and then we will get a call from a customer who is having an ejection issue with one of our Sadlak scope mounts installed.

In our experience, the most common cause for ejection issues with our Mount is a worn ejector/ejector spring and/or extractor/extractor spring so the first thing we suggest is replacement of these parts.

Other causes can include the gas system, the bolt, or even the condition of the brass if you are handloading.

If your gas system isn't clean, that can dissipate energy and create a problem so keeping it clean and serviced is important.

There can be excessive wear on the gas cylinder resulting in blow-by, another energy drain.

We've also seen a poor surface on the bolt carrier impede a clear ejection path by again dissipating the energy that would otherwise be used for proper ejection.

A dirty chamber can cause the brass excessive lag time with the same result.

If you encounter any ejection issues when using any of the Sadlak Scope Mounts, the first thing you should do is give us a call. We will do everything we can to help you diagnose the underlying problem and get you back to the range with brass flying at 2 o'clock.
