Fixin' ejector assemblies.....

On another forum I've been following threads about fly-away ejector assemblies on Ruger Blackhawks/Super Blackhawks.

I've experienced that several times over the years. Because I usually use Loc-Tite on the screw threads, when that happened it was not because the screw has loosened or fallen out. In several cases the screw sheared off, leaving the threaded stub still in the barrel. And in two cases, this occurred with older guns that had the studded barrrel. The stud either bent or pulled out all together.

Long ago I tried this, and this trick has solved fly-away assemblies for me. I removed the ejector housing assemble and clean the contact surfaces of the housing and barrel with lacquer thinner. Then sort of butter the contact surface of the housing with blue Loc-Tite and assemble and let set. Since trying this, I've never experienced a shooting ejector assembly.

Thanx Bob...I've never considered 'gluing' I guess is the term...the housing to the bbl. It makes sense...a lot more sense than having to remove a sheared screw from the bbl.! Currently, the only one of my BH's to have ejector rod retaining screw issues is a 4-digit OM in .41 Magnum...and then only if I'm shooting close to full-house loads in it. I'll try your fix to see if it helps as I don't want any part of the sheared screw nightmare. Best Regards, Rod
