    That looks like the take down lever spring, but i could be wrong...did you try removing it slowly?

    That's the ejector, it's supposed to be there.

    Whoa! Is the ejector supposed to be bent that way?

    Looks like the aftermath of an improperly cleared double-feed?

    Too hard to say with the provided photos.
    Drop the magazine, ensure the gun is unloaded and field strip it.

    Just checked my G26 and my G30....ejector arm is straight out in both, with only a very, very slight inward bend. Nothing like the first photo....:(

    It is normal. You cannt bend it clearing any kind of mis feed.

    Just because a 9mm one is straight means nothing. The 45 caliber Glocks, GAP and ACP in the full size are like this. If you straighten it out it will be abnormal and broken.

    There have been a few different .45 ejectors, the hooked-looking one stamped with the number 8196-2 is the most up-to-date and yes, it is supposed to look like that.

    8196-2 is the one I have on G21 Gen3.. It is even bent a degree or two upward.

    There is no issue here, the ejector is supposed to look like that to function appropriately... Just shoot and enjoy, you're concerned about nothing
