What are the pro's and con's between an internal and external ejector ??
The external extractor allows you to 'feel' or look at the position to determine if a cartridge is in the chamber. It will protrude somewhat. Also one can vary the tension to a wider degree by playing with the spring. On the internal extractor tension is done by bending. Personally I don't see the external as being better, sort of don't mess what ain't broke.
I agree. The internal extractor has been working just fine for 100 years. No need to try & improve upon it.
aside from what the others have accurately stated the real situation is in the quality of the ejector and that often relates to the quality of the manufacturer.
The only way I can see to settle this question is for Steve to go out and shoot 10K rds from each and come up with a final decision. (of course he must take notes)
Internal is typicaly a bit easier to service IMO.
More parts availability for internal style
A degree of adjustability as mentioned
Thanks for the info guys. I agree with Sam !! I'll start as soon as he ships me the ammo, LOL !!
