Ruger American ejection problems

I recently purchased a new Ruger American in 45 acp. The gun would eject factory and reloads in front of me 6 feet at 1 o'clock. I sent it back and the invoice stated they replaced the extractor, ejector, and the trigger assembly. I took it shooting again today and the gun has the exact same problem. I'm smart enough to know they didn't do anything at all to the gun when they got it the first time. So after calling Ruger today, I sent it back on their dime. Anybody else have this problem with their RA 45 acp?

I also are not seeing your problem. As long as it is ejecting I think it's fine. I have the same gun and it functions as it should. It is not going to eject the casing in the same spot every time.

So you like your cases ejecting in front of the other shooters by 6 feet? Every gun I have or have seen ejects them to the side. I believe that is how the gun makers want it to be.

I recently watched a video where they used different ammo and different bullet weights and depending on what they were using the rounds would eject at different angles. Both out and up would be effected by brand, weight, even a suppressor.

Try shooting a Ruger Mini 14.....It's eject brass 30-50 feet....No I do not see a problem.... As long as it isn't ejecting casings back on me....Like my Glock 17 did and also a Taurus PT 809...Got rid of both of them

What rule supports that belief?

As I reload, it would be super nice if all my pistols deposited my empty brass in a nice pile directly to my right, but alas none of them do, nor has any I ever owned!

I shoot at an outdoor range and there may be several other shooters on the line too. I have to tell everyone shooting to hold their fire while I walk out in front of the shooting line to pick up my brass for reloading. That doesn't work for me.

Why not just wait until everyone is done shooting before picking up your brass? Surely your's will be in a different area and surely they will show you courtesy to do so?

Maybe we don't all come and go at the same time. Not to hard to figure out.

My RAP 45 does occasionally ejects forward but mostly it's straight to the right (3 o'clock). Variations are expected due to user and ammo, but if its consistently throwing to 1 o'clock that's an issue.

Something is not right with the gun and Ruger took it back knowing the OP's complaints. Presumably they test fired the gun before and after, though, which makes it an odd situation.
