Ive been a member of this board for little over a year now, but this is my first post. My father passed his WH Thompson and his extensive Thompson collection down to me after a devastating diagnosis. He was a long time active member of this board. I have shot this Thompson my whole life with him and now its for me to carry on! I am also in the process of purchasing a Colt Thompson to honor his long unfulfilled wish to own one. Wish he could have made it to see me get my stamp! So hello to all! I have a question I need help with. I finally got to shoot it yesterday and I was having issues with rounds ejecting. I know he had obtained a custom milled ejector and installed it because he wanted it to look as much a '21 as possible. I looked at it and it looked a bit short. I removed it and compared it with 2 early Savage ones it did indeed is short!. I installed one of the Savage ones and will go shoot it when I get a chance and see if that resolves the problem. My big question is after I installed the Savage ejector (being careful to not scratch the receiver) I noticed I can not get it to screw in to where it is flush. Is this normal? I tried all 3 with repeated results. It seems the ejector is flush and can not turn anymore on the last turn where it is pointed toward the barrel of the gun.
