Shot my Springfield EMP at the range the other day. While field stripping it before cleaning, I had a difficult time removing the slide. When I finally was able to remove the slide, I found that the Ejector had come loose. Apparently Springfield Armory does not pin their ejectors and the “lock-tite” or whatever bonding material they used had failed. I called Springfield Armory and told them of my dilemma and they told me they were going to send me a prepaid FedEx label and to send it in where they will drill and install a pin at no-charge. “Fair enough”. I looked at my STI Trojan and my Kimber and noted that they both had pins securing their ejectors but my Springfield TRP did not and I guess it is “glued” in place same as the EMP. This did not provide a great deal of confidence in Springfield Armory in terms of making me wonder what other short cuts they take.
