Intermittant "fail to eject" symptom.
Even a great handgun can have problems
This close up view shows the intermittant ejection problem I had with my High
Standard Victor. I originally thought my slide spring might be too weak, causing the slide to "bounce" back too quickly. That could make the
slide operate too fast preventing an occasional empty case from exiting quickly enough. You can see the feeding cartridge perfectly positioned as it begins
to enter the chamber. That empty case should have been flying through the air by this time. I tried using different strength slide springs (made
by Wolfe), and the symptom remained. I also enlarged the inside, lower surface of the sight rib, to provide a bit more clearance for ejection. That
didn't help either.
The problem was caused by the ejector being too low. It pushed the empty cases upward - right smack into the sight rib.
Those empty cases bobbled around and usually ejected fine. However, for 100% reliability, a higher ejector is a big improvement.
