    Question for those who have owned this gun with the convertible extra cylinder...with the ACP cylinder installed, is the ejector rod long enough to knock the .45 ACP empties all the way out? Or do you still have to pick at them with your fingers, like with the 45 Long Colt?

    Punches 'em out...just barely.

    Punches them clear of the gun. A better solution that works with the .45 colt cylinder is to load clean burning powder in clean polished bass and the empties just dump out - no ejector rod needed.
