Upon inspecting my new pistol before taking to the range I had noticed that the ejector appeared to be rolled over towards the hammer... The pistol now after a hundred and 20 rounds functions flawlessly ejection works well of the spent cartridges in Springfield customer service told me I shouldn't have anything to worry about unless it doesn't function any opinion? It's the only issue that I've noticed upon the fit and finish everything else is perfect

Is the blade of the ejector really as thin as it looks in that pic? The funny angle isn't a problem unless it's scraping the hammer.

is it safe to manually cock the hammer on my 1911? I figured dry fire practice would save wear on the slide if I just manually cock the hammer?

Sorry, by funny angle I meant that it appears that the blade of the ejector, besides being thin, is canted towards the hammer.

Yes, you can manually cock the hammer and dry-fire until the cows come home as long as you keep a snap-cap chambered. I use these, which seem to last forever:

I'd hate to have to send it back to Springfield with only 120 rounds down range I really have a problem with parting with it especially considering its functioning properly although better fix it now than later if you think there might be a problem

I have snap caps just didn't know if I.should rechamber the cap after each fire
Not necessary. The only guns where that might be a good idea is some rimfires with very strong mainsprings. But if you use #6 screw anchors as snapcaps in 22LR guns, you can just snap away, because they are really tough.

If it is not damaging the brass to the point where it cannot be reloaded there is no reason to fix it.
