I have an ATI 1911 also. My Colt govt also puts that crease in the brass. It irons out when sizing it so I don't worry about it.

Any peening on the ejector yet?

My ATI 1911 flat out would not fire a full mag with at least one failure to eject. I sent it back and they repaired it with a new ejector and I have fired hundreds of rounds since with zero failures.

No but I haven't fired but a few hundred rounds through it. An ejector is easy enough to replace.

True enough, just curious as I've read that's an issue for some, along with cracking on the extractor. It puts a brass on my forehead about once a mag too. Overall I really like it though, and you can't beat the price.

I've been thinking of getting a Taurus PT1911 officers model and from the reviews I've read online it sounds like a good pistol. I'm a revolver fan and carry one as my EDC but have been thinking of picking another 1911 for a switch now and then.

It's my colt that throws brass everywhere, one down the back of your shirt will get your attention.
