Looking on EGWs website at their ejector bars and can only find the blue.. Does anyone know if there are SS ones available also, or if another manufacturer offers similar in a SS?

You really don't want stainless
So what do,you use for a stainless gun Greg? Rather new to using the blocks as opposed to the oversized ones, or extra long.. Since they make those in SS I just thought the blocks would also be an option..

I use carbon, I also don’t use stainless extractors. You can leave the rear area unfinished and oiled. All the silver toned guns that I build are hard chromed in the end.

Why won't you use Stainless Gregg, I'm interested in knowing. As I did notice for some reason DW doesn't appear to use any SS extractors or Ejectors in their guns. I have use the WC bullet proof stainless pretty much exclusively so far on SS guns... And so far no issues that I am aware of.. But, you guys have more time vested than I and I'm willing to hear the reasoning. Just had this type of discussion about a week ago with another addict about the DW pistols not using SS in those areas.

I have been using a 'secret stash' of very oversized stainless ejectors that were made for Dr. Barry Greyson, to my specs, by EGW several years ago.
I'm down to just a few and I need more.
In the past I have machined stainless ejectors from heat treated 400 series bar stock, but it's time consumptive.
Everything Harrison carries is of top quality. I have no hands on experience though with his oversize ejectors though.
If you run into a situation where you need a 'bigger' ejector options are limited.
Perhaps Harrison or EGW could be persuaded into a run of very oversized.

I imagine that EGW, when running some would run a batch.. From talking to them recent as soon as my FFL is in hand I will be able to have a little more clout lol... Maybe we both get em made and split some chuck.. Did, you see my reply on the checkering fixt.? I replied to your comment there again to show you what I finally ended up with. The cage will only have to be used on the horizontal and truing up the front strap, then the Tail stock will be enough for the vertical cuts. Thanks for the info. Very helpful. And yeah so far anything of John's I've used I have been very happy with the quality and the sizing as well.

I use the EGW ejector bars. Not really sure if the extra machining required is worth it. I'm going to stick with their oversize ejectors from now on.

I've used their oversized a few times, still has a decent gap. Not that hard to machine the blocks.. Just wasn't sure about the availability... Thanks everyone for your input much appreciated.
