Question Ruger P95 ejector problem. HELP!!

I've had this gun for about a month, first time out I fired about 150 rounds, almost no problems. Just a couple FTF. But in between range times, I had a problem while reassembling it. This is a link to the forum I found to fix it. (just to give you an idea of what I did! sorry if you're not supposed to post links.) Ruger P95 - What did I do!?

To fix it I had to use a coat hanger to pull the ejector down through the magazine housing to free up the slide. I think I might have bent or damaged something doing so. Today at the range I had no problems the first few mags but then it started jamming quite a bit and I looked to see why, the ejector was being pushed to the side in front of the slide causing it to bind and jam.

Basically what I wondering, can I file the ejector without destroying it? Should I replace the ejector? or should I just send it to Ruger? Just need some professional Ruger advice here!

sounds like a pin is backing out or a spring put on wrong. did you just do a field strip or disassemble?

The ejector is a sneaky little bugger. When I first got my P95 I noticed that after pushing it down and field stripping the gun it was back in the up position all by itself.. So if you put it back together without checking and it decided to go back to the up position I could see how you might get into that pickle.

Easy to do.

I'll probably be back here posting when mine does it....lol

P.S. I wouldn't file anything. Send it to Ruger.

I have experienced the RUGER P95 ejector to become lodged in front of the slide as well. I received my new Pistol, attempted to load it and WHAM! The slide jammed against the ejector and the ejector against a round in the magazine. I had to remove the magazine to dislodge the jam. After much observation, I found the ejector pin hinge to have an excessive amount of tolerance in the piece, therefore allowing it to move side to side and rock back and forth. However; I put in another magazine and shot 50 rounds without failure to load or eject. I noticed the first magazine was actually pushing the ejector to one side. The other magazine didn't do this. Seems like I have two issues here. What do I do now??

Don't know why Ruger in their night time visions ever designed a pistol that has to have the ejector manually pushed below the slide to field strip,because it won't stay down. This re-assembly problem just bit me. Thank goodness for big rubber hammers. Finally got the slide back far enough to push the ejector down. Relaoded the mag and manually ran the slide through sixteen ejections. Hopefully it will function at the range tomorrow. This is just one of the reasons I only own one ruger product.

I think this is why I only clean mine once every month or two. They are so loose I don't think there is enough dirt in the world to make one malfunction.

Not sure the panic, the P pistols work just fine. You have to follow the dis-tructions. Every P pistol has to have the ejector pushed down to remove the slide, and I always check the ejector down when reinstalling. Any number of things can dislodge the ejector from the down position while messing with the gun field stripped. Never had a problem with any of the 17 I have owned or shoot. When reassembled, push an empty magazine into place, this restores the gun to ready.

If you do take down beyond field strip, the sequence and placement of the ejector, sear, and blocking lever is critical to ensure it locks down when you push it down. The ejector is held down by the interaction and camming against the Sear and blocker lever mechanisms. Intricate little arrangement if you take these parts out.

Good luck

In March I had previously posted an issue with my NEW Ruger P95. The ejector problem of getting in front of the slide and jamming without loading. I took pictures, measurements and gathered all my data. I then sent them to Ruger along with the pistol to be repaired. The hinge hole portion of the ejector is too large for the spring loaded pin diameter and allows the ejector to move in front of the slide. After two weeks I received my pistol back from Ruger. WHAMM. It did it again. I had previously ordered a new ejector, pin and spring. I measured the parts with dial calipers and micrometers. I then placed the hinge portion of the ejector in a vise, inserted a certain size drill bit, tightened the vise until the hinge became snug around the drill. I then assebled the parts, NOW SNUG FITIING. installed them and now the ejector is in the center of the slide groove, it doesn't jam and I fiexed it myself. I suggest Ruger to visit the design and tolerances of these parts.
