Thread: Catridge ejecting at me

  1. My Baby Eagle throws brass in every direction. The only bad one was the one that landed right on the top rim of my glasses, wedged next to my eyebrow. I almost dropped the gun.

    During basic training, I ignored the order to button up our shirts. A red hot .45 acp brass found it's way inside my shirt. In pain, I started waving 1911 around like a man in pain. My finger was in the trigger guard. I swept the range officer with the pistol. He was a CPO.
    This older Chief Petty Officer made sure I received a very intense, and very through training session regarding following orders, and firearms safety.
    I will never forget.

    What is going on? What can I do to fix it?
    Try to look at the ejector if it too short, you have to replace it. Standard length: use a fine file (leatherman wave) slowly file it at 45 degree angle not straight , so the tip of the ejector is a little bit wedge.

    I agree with making certain that you keep a firm hold on your weapon.

    Beyond that, I was able to fix a similar problem on mine (after about 3,000 rounds) by detail stripping the slide and cleaning the ejector and that part on the slide into which it fits.

    I was quite surprised at how much powder residue had packed itself in and around the ejector. Not enough to cause failure to eject, but I do know that after I cleaned it up, that ended the problem with brass bouncing off my forehead and ears.
    I no longer trust my government to act on my behalf.

    My armorer guru just called with the same problem on a Colt 1911 he remodeled and was test firing. He is ordering a new bar because he said the old one is badly worn. Can not wait to get my baby back to "pet" it some. LOL, will button my shirt till the new pin is in. Love to save brass but do not want to be digging them out of my blistered belly button.

    My wife got one down the front of her shirt during training at Frontsite. I damn near tackled her cause she started yelling and hopping around. I caught her shooting arm or she woulda muzzled the whole dang lot of us. After that, she buttoned up tight.

    Almost saw that kind of dangerous action when a casing landed on a recruit's neck. He jumped up but the PA was on him nearly instantly.

    As others here have mentioned, check the ejector and recoil springs, but with a 3000 round count the spring should not be an issue. Perhaps the ejector is cracked or broken.
    The other item is grip, are you not locking otherwise know a limp wristing?

    Catridge ejecting at me

    It stopped ejecting at me. I don't know why. Maybe it was the ammo. I don't know.
