I am having a set of double rifle barrels made for my Krieghoff Teck O/U. I have a choice between straight extractors and a system which allows me to choose between extractors and ejectors. The changeover takes about two minutes with a screwdriver as the only tool. What are your thoughts on the matter?

I have another Teck in caliber .458 WM, with extra barrel sets in .375 H&H and 20 gauge 3" Magnum. All the barrel sets are fitted with ejectors and I have never had an issue with any of them.

If it is a dangerous game set of barrels, which I am assuming .500 NE is, I'd want the choice of ejectors. Just in case.

I cannot imagine digging hulls out with my fingers, before I could reload, with a buff bearing down on me.

Neither could I, Stan. Have been watching some of the African hunting videos on U-tube (to cure "cabin fever" I guess) and if I were in that scenario you detailed re: ejectors- yes or no-- I'd hope my PH was, like Robert Wilson in the great Hemingway story- carrying a .505 Gibbs, a BA "stopper".

At age 77 (plus) I most likely won't get an African Safari in my lifetime-But if I had the available funds for such a hunting trip, you can bet your bottom dollar I'd pay the going price for a top quality express rifle, ejectors and SST- like Hemingway's Westley Richards-- RWTF

xausa,
This is a highly personal choice, with good justification for both sides. As for myself, I chose plain extractors. They don't depend on a complicated mechanism to operate, therefore are more dependable. Ejectors on the shot barrels of the same gun make a very loud "clack" when I break it open, making a silent reload impossible. Extractor on the combination barrels allowed taking 3 Reh( decidedly not dangerous game) at one sitting on more than one occasion by silently reloading.

+1 for extractors on SxS shotguns and my two SxS double rifles.

As Der Ami said, this is a personal choice and "you pays your money and takes your choice". I have my reasons.

For what it is worth, my two DG lever guns eject empties and reload multiple rounds; with the second shot almost as fast as a double and with many more rounds if needed.

Double rifles seem to be used mostly in larger calibers for pursuit of dangerous game. Stuff that may fight back.

I get the arguments for the simplicity and silence of extractors, but I would want ejectors on any DG rifle I owned. Can't imagine fumbling empties out of my .450-400 trying to reload while a buffalo or elephant is rapidly closing on me.

I have ejectors on all my double guns save one and have never had issues with them malfunctioning.

Agree with you 100%-- My double shotguns ( 4 in 12 bore, 1 a 20 bore) have ejectors- all have double triggers, except the M21 12 ga. my late father left me in 1980- that has a SST. Never have had any problems with the ejectors functioning on my guns, but it might be noted that I am religious about gun cleaning and proper storage and maintenance. RWTF

The ejectors on my two Parker Repro shotguns have not malfunctioned either - I just have to catch the empties as they exit the chambers and put them in my shooting vest to avoid littering the shooting area. I do not like to litter at the range or in the hunting field; nor do I like to pick up empties tossed out by ejectors.
My circa 1900 Parker extracts empties and I have become quite proficient at collecting them from the chambers and placing them in my shooting vest. As stated before, a matter of personal preference. BTW, This is one of the reasons that do not own auto shotguns or rifles- the are litter bugs. smile
