    Wish it had ejectors instead of extractors.

    That’s the only thing I see wrong with it. Still a 13.5k gun ...

    How do you guys like the Kreighoff action? It seems people either love or hate the combi cocking feature. It seems very safe to carry, but not sure about snap shooting with it if needed.

    I like mine, I cock it while raising the rifle into the shoulder as one would with traditional safety. Quick to get used to. Mine’s got selective ejectors/extractors. Break the rifle cocked and it ejects, break it uncocked and it extracts. I’ve got 470 N.E. and 9.3x74R barrels and enjoy both.

    Perfect German engineering. I like mine. Not sure why anyone wouldn’t want a safety that actually works?
    All these used ones have extractors instead of ejectors for some reason. It was the same last year when I was buying mine. I could have bought several for really good prices if I had settled for extractors. Note to self: if you buy a double and want a good resale value on it get ejectors!
    I know it has been done to death but why would you want to be fiddleing around with the spent shells if a DG animal is bearing down on you?
    Regards,
    Philip

    I hope to own a double someday hopefully not in the too distant future. And kicking myself for not buying a display model Krieghoff up here for 10k. Can’t find one close to that in price now.

    As to your question, in all my reading for extractors and ejectors, guys talk about the noise ejectors make while hunting elephant if you’re close to a herd.

    Myself, I’d choose ejectors

    To me ejectors are essential when reloading a for a charging animal... I spent the day getting acquainted with my new Heym .500NE over a sensible lunch consisting of 20 rnds. of 570gr DGX Hornady bullets...:Happy: all I can say is wow... what a gun.. and remarkable accurate.. my best 2 consecutive quick succession shots were withing an inch at 50yrds... just a great rifle. I want another one to go with it!!
