    Norinco ejector loose

    I keep running into things with this 9mm Norinco 1911 that I'm cleaning - I stripped it down completely, except for the plunger tube - I noticed the the ejector is loose - it moves up and down about 1\8th inch - so I knocked the pin out that holds in the ejector and the cut in the ejector "foot" looks OK - it's not elongated or anything like that, and the pin fits in pretty tightly, but the ejector still moves up and down. After a closer look, it seems like while the holes in the frame that accept the two "feet" from the ejector are correct relative to the ejector, they might be a bit off as far as the pin placement that's supposed to hold in the ejector - in other words, the pin isn't making a tight fit with the ejector foot - not so loose that it comes out, but not tight enough. Since I'm not gonna weld anything or re-drill any holes, I'm thinking I put the ejector back in with the pin as it is, and use some red Loctite to keep the ejector where it should be.

    The gun will likely see only some light, occasional use at the range when it's done - that's about it.

    Any alternate suggestions \ guidance ?? THANKS !!

    Ah, so, fine old world craftsmanship.

    Loctite it. A lot of Springfield ejectors are held in only by glue and they do OK until somebody notices and gets offended.

    I figured that the ChiComs simply sent us guns designed to fail so when we had to defend ourselves when they invaded us, the guns wouldn't work - let's hope they don't know that we have locktite !!! THANKS!

    Why do anything? Where's the ejector going to go?

    Sure, but I just hate it when stuff like that isn't working as designed - it shouldn't pop up out of those holes - it could be worse - as my shooting buddy and I say, "it's a first world problem" !

    If the ejector is decent quaility metal and not MIM or cast, you can tun the ejector upside down and hammer the bottom of the foot.
    The foot will get wider. If you go too much you can sand the side of the pin with #320 sand paper to reduce the circumfernce.
    When you replace the Ejector in the gun use some green Loctite I belive the number is #262.
    It a Wicking formula , perfect for pins.
    Make sure the holes and the Ejector are degreased and dry, before the loctite.
