My family and I got in late yesterday afternoon from the annual 4th of July visit at the farm. The crops – soybeans and field corn – look really good this year. The post office yesterday delivered our held mail and in the bundle I was delighted to find…? That’s right, the TWO ejector/slide-stop parts I ordered from that excellent fellow, Mike McClellan, at M & M Gunsmithing of Hazel Green, Alabama. I got two because one might not be enough. Various threads on several gun-owners’ discussion boards indicate this part has been known to break. My own experience indicates replacements are not easy to come by.
Here are a couple of pictures, front and back, of the broken part:
I have an Astra Constable 380 cal, and need a Ejector / Slide Retainer, .32 /.380. Would you still have any?
I don’t think I still have that second ejector/slide retainer. Please check with Mike McClellan whose contact information appears on the invoice and parts photographed in the blog post. Also, where I’ve written M & M Gunsmithing in the paragraph below the picture, I’ve linked to his business’ still active website. Hope you get that Constable fixed. I liked mine a lot, but never reckoned it reliable enough to keep after that part broke. I traded it on a Glock 43. Not as cool, but I never worry it’ll fail.
