Don't use the roll pin...simple.

That would be my course of action. I know the engineering benefits of roll pins as I fight them at my job daily, but they add a "cheap expedient"feel to things that should feel nice. If you know what I mean...

That's exactly why I was thinking about trying the coil spring pins - stronger than a roll pin but still a snug fit in the frame hole.

StrikerDown - I'm not an engineer. Is that difference in strength significant? It doesn't sound like a big difference to me.

To elaborate on Strikerdown's post:

1/16" dowel pin strengths from Machinery's Handbook:

1/16" AISI B18.8.2 hardened steel dowel pin double shear: 800 lbf
1/16" AISI B18.8.2 hardened steel spring pin double shear: 425 lbf
1/16" AISI B18.8.2 hardened steel roll pin double shear: 300 standard duty and 450 lbf heavy duty. (250 lbf mentioned before is the strength of AISI 302 stainless)

The dowel pins are certainly stronger but can be hard to fit. If the ejector is properly fit, as mentioned before, the pin isn't under any load. If the extractor is loose then the pin will see a load.

FWIW, my buddies Citadel 1911 had a loose ejector a few years back and the hole was wallowed out as a result. I put in a 1/16 roll pin because that's all I had to fix it and he hasn't had any problems since then.

Best regards
Eric

I think like Don said, it should keep it from falling out. I have built several that have no pin period. Tight fit and loctite.

Where else will you get a discussion like this? So refreshing to get good advice detailed information and no name calling...
