I just got a Lwt GI Champion and have a question about the ejector. Every 1911 ejector I've ever seen - including the one on my Kimber Pro Carry, an equivalent pistol - has a nose, if you know what I mean. The Lwt GI doesn't. In fact, it actually slopes backwards. The ejector works -at least, in my first 120 rounds there were no failures - but the case mouths had quite a dent. So, is my ejector normal?

Your ejector is normal for a gun made up to look like Army surplus. The long ejector came in with the Colt Commander and its short slide travel. Competitors found it helped with funky ammo and it became common. Interesting that they used a GI ejector on their short gun. But if it works it works. Dents are due to a combination of the short ejector and small military type ejection port.

Thanks - I just thought it looked kind of weird since I've always read that commander or shorter length guns need longer ejectors.
