I bought a Ceiner 22 conversion kit for my Colt Commander (lwt version - but not marked as so). The conversion slide won't go past the ejector. It doesn't seem to be notched quite as wide as the 45 slide - I measure about 3 thousandths difference. My ejector is loose and poorly fitted.

Can I get a different style of ejector to work reliably with both slides or should I abandon the project?

Buck40, when you put the slide on the frame, take it back as far as it will go then hold it up with the muzzle toward a light source. If you can't see light all around the ejector a little judicious filing is in order on the outside of the ejector itself. If you can see light, the problem lies in the frame rail slot at that point. It might be that your ejector pin is protruding a little and just needs to be drifted back into place or you may have to lap the slide to the frame. George
