Simultaneously, camming surfaces located inside the forearm bracket and below the ejector hammer sears move the ejector trip rods back into the receiver. Hammers are powered by powerful coil-type mainsprings for positive primer ignition. After I cut off one more coil the shells were lifted nicely the way I wanted it.
