    P12-45 Ejector replacement, standard or ..?

    So turns out my in addition to my extractor, it appears my ejector is broken. Does the P12-45 use a standard 1911 ejector or standard for an officier's model, or something different? Is the original an "extended" ? I've successful removed the broken piece, now I'm looking for a stainless steel to match my gun. I've seen some that required drilling, something I'm comfortable with. How difficult is this, considering this is my carry gun, should I find a professional to replace this?

    The P12.45 is essentially a double stack Officers ACP, so most likely it needs an Officers ejector. Beyond that, I have a fuzzy recollection that all para pistols used the wider, 9mm style of ejector. You might call Sarco and ask if they know -- they bought all the Para parts.

    Thanks I'll ask them. Haven't heard that name in a long time. Used to love their ads in Shotgun News.

    It's easy to determine if your gun needs a "9mm ejector"* or not: is the right flat side of the old ejector an even, flat side, or does it have a step near the rear? If the answer is yes, you need the "9mm ejector".

    *worst part description ever, hence in quotes. Colt uses this ejector on ALL 1911s with a barrel shorter than 5", regardless of caliber.
    Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold.
