A bent ejector rod can make the ejection of spent casings rough, and can also prevent smooth functioning of the revolver action. Watch along as Larry Potterfield, Founder and CEO of MidwayUSA, explains the process for straightening a bent ejector rod in this presentation. He starts by disassembling the gun and removing the ejector rod. The rod is then chucked in a drill press and a dial indicator is mounted to the press table. By hand turning the quill, the dial indicator is used to measure the amount of runout that is present. Using a nylon faced hammer, the rod is tapped back into alignment until the excessive runout is removed. Then the revolver is ready to be reassembled.
