The ejector on any semi-auto firearm must function without failure every time a case is extracted. The ejector must absorb hard use without failing. Ejectors that come loose after sustained pounding by extracted cases or ejectors that suffer enough wear that they can no longer throw empty cases out of the slide will stop your handgun instantly. That can leave you with a jam that is difficult to remove. The only solution to serious ejector failure is to disassemble the pistol. If this happens at a time when you can’t afford to stop shooting, the failure of this small piece of metal could put your life in jeopardy.
The Springfield XD/XDM ejector from Powder River Precision carries the American Pistolsmith Guild’s Seal of Approval. The ejector fits XD and XDM models, with the exception of the XD Thumb Safety Model. A new ejector from PRP will likely be tough enough to outlast the rest of your Springfield XD/XDM.
PRP’s improvement to the ejector involves beefing up the Springfield XD/XDM ejector where added metal is needed. The ejector has also been redesigned to sit lower in the frame. CNC machined from hardened 416 stainless, the new ejector withstands repeated battering. Both changes combine to decrease stress on the ejector and increase consistent removal of spent cases.
