Trooper mk3 ejector rod
I have a colt trooper mkIII
I love this pistol, fun and accurate to shoot.
The one negative about it is that the ejector rod has alway over time unscrewed itself as I shoot so every 30 shots or so I would always check it and screw it back in or it would come out far enough so that I couldnt close the cylinder.
Recently the last few times I shot it I noticed that it was getting increasingly difficult to cock or shoot DA.
It took me a while to figure out what was wrong, I cleaned and oiled it really well to start off with.
Eventually I took out the ejector rod and cylinder ratchet and saw that it looks like the rod is slightly bent.
I figure that this would most likely be what's causing the issue.
So where can I get a replacement ejector rod for my mkIII.
And is it normal for the ejector rod to come unscrewed on its own? If not how do I prevent that from happening again?
I haven't had it happen on my Colts, but anything screwed can come unscrewed. Clean the threads with lacquer thinner or some similar solvent and set with Loc-tite.
Oops! only answered half yore question. Try this:
Numrich Gun Parts Corporation
From their on-line catalog:
Ejector Rod, Nickel $15.80
Ejector Rod, Blue $14.50
I have the same revolver, but haven't had that problem.
I would do as Bob said, clean threads, loc-tite and you will probably be fine with a new rod.
