Could anyone please confirm the length of an original (new) Beretta 686 ejector spring

thanks in advance

Why do you ask?

Have your ejectors started sticking?

How old is the gun?

They do compress and wear over the years, normally worth changing the pair yourself just for piece of mind, don't forget new plungers as well.

Good luck, hope that sorts the problem.

Not checked old spring length yet.

Still trying to find why the top ejector works as an ejector (not lifter) when the unloaded gun has been left for more than 12 hours unfired. Looking possibility of a sticking cocking rod/lever.
The ejectors work normally when firing the gun and work as lifters if the loaded unfired gun is opened.

FYI the gun is 1987 and seen quite a lot of regular work.

Do you need to replace the plungers at the same time, I need to replace the springs on a 687 20b as one is sticking and is not easy to locate new ones online. Not been to a dealer yet but will.

You don't need to, but it is regarded as good practice as they wear too.

Saving a couple of quid always seems a sure way to look for trouble.

Doubt if it has anything to do with springs . Could be the tripper in the forend , as you say the cocking rod sticking  or wear/ burr's  on the extractor end  , a loose forend etc

For those who dont know . Beretta extractors are under constant pressure from the springs so they will always " lift out" to their full extent when the gun is opened . When fired the trippers will effectively hold the extractor down till the camming point when it will slip allowing the springs to throw the extractor out .

The problem may well be  the trippers are holding back when they shouldn't so the problem lies in finding why this is happening .

 Had it come to me and that there was no obvious fault seen , the first thing would be a full strip and deep clean , esspesially of ALL springs and plungers in the forend and cocking train as well as the ejectors .

Thanks for that. Cleaned all forend parts and actual ejection has improved.

Looking closely at the cocking rod and levers the left hand rod becomes stiff to move after leaving the action for over 4 hour ,

cocking lever seems free.

Cleaned and oiled without removing rods etc waiting to see if any better tomorrow.

If not I guess it’s a strip down and polish rod / guide hole.

 Could be they need taking out and cleaning to get rid of dried oil  .There is also cam with a small spring and plunger behind the cocking rods that lift the hammers . These can get gummed up or rusty so need to be cleaned .

This why  guns need be serviced occasionally to get at all the small bits you cant see .
