    Took apart the 1911 to clean/oil and notice this on the rail. Not sure what it is but is it cause for concern? Looks like a tooling mark but not sure..

    Is that a new gun or has that just happened? It does not look good to me.

    It's a used gun, not sure when it happened. It's not as deep as it looks and the slide is still sliding like glass so i don't know what to make of it, no matching marks on the slide rails..possible it came from the factory with that?

    Looks like surface rust. Oil it and wipe the rust off. Keep an oil film on the steel.

    Can't tell.... is that as deep as it looks? Probably won't affect anything, but that's one of the few instances it would bother me knowing it's there. Is that a Sig?

    Looks like a hack-gunsmith "relieved" a burr after rep inning the
    ejector. While it looks like ****, I would be more concerned about
    blending that burr/gouge on the frame rail. As long as they get
    blended, they will be fine. Look like crap, but will not effect function.

    that was my thought. So far it doesn't seem to affect function. The gun feels really nice aside from that, so i just wanted to make sure it wasn't going to explode into a ball of gas flames and unicorns next time i shoot it.

    Wow that looks terrible.

    I had Springfield install a new ejector for me on one of my guns, and they didn't have to grind on it a bit. As said above that was done by some hack that knows not what he does.

    Take a fine file, dress the bur, oil her up, and shoot the tar out of it. The travesty is the area where the ejector was re-pinned, but this too shall pass.

    What does the slide look like inside? Any damage?

    Must be one of those "bargain" 1911's. I've never seen
    anything like that.

    I had a Sig 1911 that had the same thing. I sent it back for repair and all was well.

    Looks like one of the pins that secures the ejector got pulled through, or out of the frame. The hole suggests the ejector is being held without all the pins in place. Is that possible?

    Or, the ejector has been replaced with one that has different pin locations than the one that was originally attached to the frame.

    Other than the integrity of the ejector, it seems a blemish in that location is inconsequential.

    What I see is some nut bag that went crazy with a dremel and cutting disk.

    Why?

    Only said nut bag would know.


    I have a gun that had a poorly pinned ejector. The pin they used was a split pin that wasn't much wider than the front leg of the ejector. It made it appear that the gun had two different diameter holes drilled into it. One on each side. I could see someone seeing something like that and trying to open up one side not realizing the hole was really the same size as the other, it only looked smaller because of the tiny split pin that was flush fit on one side.

    Now the gun has a well fit ejector pinned in place with full length solid pin.

    Shoot it, and come back in 50 years and tell us if it is still working. Or replace the ejector and pin, and come back in 100 years.

    The OP seems to have runn-oft without letting us know the frame manufacture.
     
  19. Yep that's the ejector pin hole. It looks horrible. Hope it's not as deep as my 2-D photo leads me to believe.

    He can live without the pin. I think the original 1911 didn't have a pin there. It was held by the slide. Loc-title is my main ejector looking mechanism. But man that looks like pi$$.
