No you do not need ejectors, it is handy though if you are hunting doves when you may need to reload fast. I have 5 sxs shotguns and only one has ejectors, my o/u has them but I rarely shoot it.

Well, I want them, and was just asking how high end I have to get to get them in an O/U. Do Red Labels have them? What about the Spartan's that Remington sells? We often get in a fast shooting frenzy in rabbit season and I want to reload quickly. I have semi's, but want to start hunting with a O/U

I have a Yildiz in 20 gauge that I paid 350 for. It has ejectors, and that little bugger will crank the empties about 15 feet when you break the gun open!

yeah sharkbait, good point. I'd hate to open the gun and have loaded rounds flinging to who knows where. I think from prior encounters though that most of the ones with ejectors will only eject the spent round.

If the unfired shell is being kicked out with the fired one the ejectors are not working properly. No ejector gun is made that way.

I thought that too, John, but not being real up on my SxS and O/U's, I thought I'd ask to be sure. Think I'll look into a Spartan as Red Labels are a bit dicey for me

My advice is to purchase a good quality used o/u. Cheap o/u's are just that. They are blocky and heavy and generally dissapointing to shoot and carry. As a shooting instructor I see many many folks wanting to play the part and buy a stackbarrel without spending any money. Go to shows or check online auctions and find a used quality gun. Beretta,browning,ruger,SKB or even some of the traditions guns are all so much better choices then the cheap russian and turkish stuff.
