Brownells Ejector Bit

I recently bought Brownells Ejector bit to disassemble my SP101 cylinder. The slot in the bit, however, is not deep enough to clear the pin which protrudes from the cylinder.

Has this pin been lengthened on recent production SP101's or is something else wrong here?

Thanks in advance.

The hole in the tool in which the ejector rod fits is very tight, and may have some residue from the manufacturing process in it. Put a little drop of oil on a pipe cleaner and clean out the hole. You may have to exert a little force to seat the tool in the slots in the cylinder rod. Don't overdo it, but you should be able to get the tool to seat.

Also, you may want to use a drill bit to clean up the entry to the hole on the tool. It may have a small burr on it.

Thanks very much - it was exactly as you stated, a manufacturing burr was preventing the bit from seating!!

When I got my ejector bit from Brownells, the hole was filled with tiny bits of metal shavings. I chose an appropriate sized drill bit and just drilled it clean under a low rpm. After that, it worked like magic.
