I was disassembling the 1893 38-55 30" barrel I just got to clean and replace the broken ejector. I noticed that the ejector is the old style held in by a small screw (like the 1889's). I saw numrich does not have these, does anyone know where I can get one or do I have to get one made?

I don't know of anyone who has them, but I've always just used the later style without the screw and put a filler thread in the hole. The later ejectors fit right in and function fine.
I make a filler screw by cutting a screw the correct length to just go in the hole and bluing the end. Then I turn them in with finger pressure on the end until they are flush. This gives the original appearance so nobody will know.

Yup Wizners makes them, tho they aren't drop in. Numrich sometimes has them too.

I called Wisners and they currently don't have any, I saw the one on ebay and I think it will work-I think the 1889 ejector is the same??

I believe the 1889 is shorter in length.

Dont know if you repaired the problem,but thought I would add a pic and some measurements.The 1889 ejector measures 1 1/16" from the center of screw hole to the end of the arm.The catch is located 5/32" back from the end of the arm.I have a pic to compare an original 1889 along side a original(with broken spring)1893 ejector.Looks like a 1889 may work in a 1893.
