Loose ejector




Hey guys I just noticed that my ejector in my GI 1911 is pretty loose. I can pull it upward and see light between it and the frame. Im not sure what I need to do to fix this any help would be greatly appreciated. I apologize if this has already been covered but I could not find it in a search. I would prefer not to send my gun back to Nevada as it has just got back. Thanks in advance

It is a little loose fit. Not terribly uncommon. It will likely work okay like this for awhile (or longer) or you can:
  1. Simplyl hit it with some green "guntite" on the pins and let it set up (keeping it properly located of course)

or:
  1. Purchase correct unfitted ejector
  2. check roll pin location carefully
  3. Hand fit roll pin groove a little on the tight side of the dowel (forward)
  4. Press ejector all the way in (why not drop a bit of guntite on the dowels, just for giggles?)
  5. locate roll pin and press it (friction fit) into your correctly machined groove
  6. Voila!

Nothing against Wilson ..their Bulletproof and Heavy Duty series lines are top drawer
But check out EGW too

http://www.egwguns.com/ejectors/

Unlike many companies that spec/contract the parts from vendors and package them with their logo, EGW actually make/manufacture the parts.

I don't "know" this, but I'd bet my last bullet that EGW makes many parts for 1911 manufactures who simply re-package them and $ell for more due to hi-end brand name recognition



side note on ejector change, as long as the ejector leg/peg isn't broken and stuck in the frame, it shouldn't be too tough of a job .
Be careful if you use Dawson's drill method that you don't egg shape or oversize the pin hole in the frame


..L.T.A.
