    I am wanting to remove the ejector from my TM1 so I can soften the spring tension. How do I do it? Thanks

    Take the barrel off, look for small hole, paper clip size, on the side, in line with the ejector. Place a paper clip thru this hole, depress ejector, apply pressure to the paper clip, slowly release pressure on ejector. The paper clip is depressing a small spring loaded pin that rides in a notch in the side of the ejector.

    Do it something white so you won't lose the very small spring and pin.

    TS2001,

    That's a very good idea to reduce the spring pressure on that ejector. In my experience that spring loaded pin that stops the ejector is the weak link in a TM-1 as it takes a significant beating over time, along with the notch in the ejector that slams into it. You may want to pick up another spring and pin in case it's deformed and the contact surface of the ejector, although pretty hard, may need a little cleaning up with a file or stone. Otherwise it's a great gun.
