Springfield

Here is a bad habit of Springfield Armory's.  They don't always pin the ejector to the gun.  They just glue it.  Pah!

It's a part that takes a lotta pounding.  And they pin in all their high end guns.  Why not this model?  Do you really save that much, it's less than half an hour to do it. 

Anyway, Ima send this in.  Now I gotta research all the stuff you need to do to mail a gun in for service.  PITA...



They also shape the ejector kinda off, but they aren't alone.  And it is easy to fix. More like the above. less like below.  For reasons.

If you think the lower ejector is shaped incorrectly, you need to look at a true GI-spec ejector. It is much shorter, and the top is angled in the opposite direction. The reason some smiths bevel the bottom of the extended ejector is to keep it from interfering with the magazine and the cartridges loaded within. Now, you may not want to leave a sharp point at the top of the extended beak, but the lower bevel doesn't hurt anything.
