1006 Brass ejection

Just found this site, still glad to see people shooting the 10mm.

I have a 1006 and it throws brass at least 15-20 feet. It is a real pain in the a$$ to chase the brass down.

My friend has a Delta and it drops the brass by his feet with the same loads.

I was wondering if any of you have this same problem and if it can be reduced. I thought of puting a heaver recoil spring in but I not sure this will help.

Any suggestions?

Well, a heavier recoil spring will help with that, but really heavy recoil springs usually aren't a good idea. I don't know what S&W guns came with standard, but 20 pounds should be plenty.

A slight change in angle On your ejector will alter the flight path of your brass.

S&W's 5" barrel 10mms, the 1006 & 1026, use a factory recoil spring weighted @ 18lbs.

Wolff's offers XP recoil springs for the 1006/1026 of 20lbs, 22lbs, & 24lbs. They also offer reduced power springs running 14-17lbs.

When you say change the angle on the extractor, what angle are you refering to? The side of the extractor that grips the rim of the case? or the angle of the sharp face of the extractor?

I believe the 1006 came with a 18# spring, I may try a 20 or 22# spring and see if it helps

Thanks for the replys.

I believe he said "ejector".

Don't know how many times I've interchanged the two myself. :-?
