I had same issue with my 101 got the ejector hammer from MGW a long time ago. After that I cut two coils from each spring,problem solved. Where to get one, your looking in the right places. Try having it welded then cut two coils off the springs.

A gunsmith friend of mine suggested to me over 20 years ago removing the ejector springs in my 101 as he said way back then parts for them were getting scarce and the hammers had a tendency to snap with lots of use. I never did and never broke one. After 37 years with the gun I sold it last year and it was still working fine but seeing this made me realize how maybe I was lucky all these years not to have to replace any parts on it. If Midwest doesn't have them I don't know who would? You could try Western Gun Parts in Edmonton, Alberta. They often have new parts for 101's from old inventory in stock.

I had this guy weld a broken ejector for a shotgun which was unobtainable. He was reasonable and was recommended by Dean Harris of Skeets Gun Shop. Dean did the filing and fitting for me when i got it back.

Any gunsmith worth the title can manufacture one. Not a cheap venture, but one I would only endure once before sending the mediocre 101 to another home. Much better target shotguns available that won't put you through this adventure (hint: K, K, P and a few SBT's like L, B, and A). Good Luck.

I have had this happen on a couple of my 101's. Replaced them with ones from midwest and Nu line years ago. The info about removing a couple coils from springs do help. It's a weak area where they break.
I've just removed all of these and the trip rods from inside the receiver also. It only extraction now. They never did really throw them far to begin with. Yes there are better more expensive guns out there but the joy of beating those guys with a 101 is priceless!
