Strange Ejection Port Opening




I saw this pistol on an auction site but have never seen an ejection port opening like this, is this a "bubba" job or is this something that was done professionally?

Thank you for your time.

It doesn't look particularly "professional" to me at all.

That was done by Bubba's teacher.

That's what I thought also but I just wanted to make sure I hadn't missed something new.

Not sure, but possibly Bubba's brother-in-law Ralph after a few beers.

It looks sort of like the port on the original Detonics Combat Master. Maybe someone had a CM that always ejected into perfect, little brass piles, and when their Colt didn't do the same, they went all rattail on the port.

It looks like a runaway Dremel.

Before there was "flaring" and lowering a lot of guys did that. It gets the case out to the side with little or no vertical travel and keeps it from banging into a scope.
