That was me. I did the first cut attempt on the new ejector. Shortened very slightly and angled it a little to hit outside edge of rim. Unfortunatly that resulted in no noticeable change. Still get 2:00 ejection. I’ll try another cut soon.They was a guy in the main CDG thread with same issue that replied to me regarding this, that order another ejector and was going to tweak it to see if he could improve the direction of the brass but haven’t heard from him
Do a lil Google foo on how a mechanical blade ejectors work, and try that again.......I don't have one of these actions so I'm just going off of what I've experienced with other brands.
It seems the extractor needs to hold onto the rim of the case long enough for the angular momentum to carry it out the ejection port. At least in the 3:00 direction.
Take the bolt out and hook a fired case under the extractor and rotate it so that the base of the case is against the bolt face. Now you van try just releasing the case to see what it does or slowly letting the case rotate.
That's what I'm thinking. Extractor under spring tension applying consistent inward lateral pressure throughout the ejection arc. Basically extractor is pushing the case slightly back in as the ejector pushes the case over the breakover angle and the result is a outward and forward ejection.Not hitting receiver, it gets launched by ejector. Might have more to do with how the extractor releases it.
It has a (high rate) coil spring powered extractor unlike Ted's previous actions. You should be able to see the spring in the bolt head as it's partially exposed. The choice of the high rate spring is what leads me to believe it's extractor spring related.The CDG doesn’t have a traditional coiled spring powered extractor. It’s a metal leaf spring type.
Id call mine 2:30 to 3:00. Checked it this morning a bunch of times.I missed this. I’d say 2:00-2:30 shooting 22GT.
Same issue with me running 22BR. Spent brass 2-230 and dummy rounds 3-330 where they should be.Playing with my CDG I have two ejection patterns with 22 GT brass when running the bolt back quickly:
Spent brass mostly ejects at 2:30 with the occasional 2:00 O'Clock
Dummy rounds mostly eject at 3:30 with the occasional 3:00
We shall see during the match tomorrow what happens in real world situations.
