Where may I find an oversized piece for fitting? Not finding anything listed with egw, ed brown or anything on brownells or midway.

Good question. I've been dissatisfied with the loose fit of everything that I've tried. Peening the ribs can remove slop and is what I currently do, but does nothing for the visible gaps at the bottom. TIG/mill/file to fit the last 1/4" is the way that I've thought about dealing with it, but I haven't tried that yet. The community has gotten George Smith (EGW) to produce oversized ejectors. Perhaps we can convince him to make the MSH ribs a little fatter.

That would be nice. An oversized unit that may be strapped or modified as desired.
