    Can someone summarize ejector history for me?

    I have two third gen pistols with the ejectors marked 1882, and two second gen pistols, one with a 4340 ejector (which is noticably shorter than the 1882's) and one with a 336 ejector (which seems about the same length as the 1882's, but with a bend to the right which makes it difficult to get it to pass through the opening in the slide cover plate during reassembly.)

    What's right and what's wrong on these guns? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks Butch. Good info.

    My remaining questions are (1) should I change the ejector on my M22 from 4340 to 1882 and (2) if so what extractor do I need to go with the 1882?

    You don't *need* to change it, unless you're having functioning problems. I still have the short ejector in a few of mine and they work great. But then, I've never seen it cause a problem either.

    I guess I wouldn't go to any great lengths to have it done if your gun works OK, but when you get to your next GSSF match, tell the armorer there that you still have the short ejector and I expect he'll replace it for ya, quick and free.

    You *DO* shoot GSSF matches....right? http://www.gssfonline.com
