    I was hoping to confirm my fear that I have damaged the ejector on my G21. Using a loop cable gun lock, the slide got away from me as I put the cable through the chamber. I have attached a picture of what I saw when I looked inside. Looks to me that I bent the ejector :crying:.

    I guess I have three questions.

    First, did I in fact bend the ejector? On my other Glocks the ejectors are straight and I never recall seeing it bent on my G21.

    Second, is this an easy fix or should I go to a gun smith? I have found the trigger houssing with ejector for $8. I imagine labor to replace it is going to be about $50.

    Third, how do you use a loop gun lock? I have decided that I will remove the slide in the future and loop the cable through the reciever. I don't like leaving the slide locked open for extended periods of time and I don't like it closed on the cable.

    Any thoughts and comments are appreciated.

    1 The ejector is fine. That is the way it is manufactured. No need to change out the trigger housing.
    2 Never pay a gunsmith to do an easy job like this. I highly recommend you pick up a copy of "The Complete Glock Reference Guide" and do the work yourself. http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail.aspx?PROD=186 I guarantee this easy to read instruction manual will walk you through any and every little detail you want to do to your Glock.
    3 If you really want to use a gun lock I recommend you loop the cable through the mag well and out the ejection port. Drop (ease it down) the slide on the cable and be done with it.
