    I have a Ruger P97DC .45 and the ejector is out and after about 4 hours of trying to get it back in i guess i need some help it is on a big watch type pin with spring loaded ends. Does anyone have any idea how to get it back where it belongs??? I sure would appreciate any ideas .

    Thank:confused:s

    First, welcome to the FTF. Some people like to see the first post in the "Introductions" section.
    Not knowing your experience level, some people may be leery of answering your question or to offer suggestions.
    Ruger has user manuals on their website. What part # is the spring?

    it looks like V00902 (straight part goes behind (or the muzzle side) of V00911) and part KV26600 goes thru the loop of v00911 and v00902. Does that make sense?

    You may have to install V00902 with the "fingers" in an upright position

    I'm not looking at the diagram now, so bear with me.
    is it possible to use a "shim" material (something stronger than aluminum foil) and slide the whole thing down. I think there may be recesses in the frame that KV26600 will expand into. Or use picks to work it down.
    How did you get it out anyway?

    Its fixed

    Thank you all for all the help

    I finally got to work on it some more life has been hectic lately and i haven't had time to slow down longer than a breath but i worked on it for a while then it occurred to me to use feeler gauges to work the ejector down into place and it worked well once again thank you for all the help i never would have got it alone
