I have been looking the gun over and looking for ways to get the brass to eject sideways, instead of straight back over my head. Will bending up the ejector a bit help? Mine is sitting pretty flush/level with rails.

The ejector is the main control. Unless you have a very gentle sensitive hands, you best take it to a good gun smith.

If it is a year old or less, call Taurus and have them pick it up. Mine kept hitting me in the forehead along with a chambering issue. They replaced the extractor and 10 days later I had it back. Don't recall dodging brass since then. If you do call them, and you know the gun is a year or less, they might not offer to pay for shipping. But if you insist on it, they will usually do it. I had them email me a fedex label and I dropped it off since I am never home for a pickup.

Yes, it is mostly the ejector. I think (!) they are all on a plane with the extractor. Those I've touched seem very hard and may not respond to a file. There are posts about the ejector on 1911 forums. Apparently they stone the ends to a different angle to affect the direction of discharge.

Yes, confer with the factory and guys a lot smarter then I.

HMM! you don't say how many rounds are through the weapon??
so-- Tune the exractor ( the force with which it holds the spent case, the length of time) it holds it effects the path off the ejector! sometimes simply a very good cleaning can change the way it works, change ammunition to a heavier/lighter, or more powerful ammo, simple use as the gun wears in the change may move the extracted cases, return it to Taurus.

About five hundred through it. I worked on the extractor a bit. Smoothing mostly. Ever so slightly bent up the ejector, and now it will fling them far over my head. Before, it would send them straight up, and sometimes right at my head. Much better than it was!

My 709 ejects straight to the right; Call Taurus at the 800# in your book; Ask for Susan; she seems to be
the most knowledgeable and helpful;

A proper functioning weapon should not eject hot brass at the user.

What has been mentioned does effect ejection dynamics...but so does...

"Limp Wristing"; "pronounced limp" wristing will cause reliability problems.

While a "moderate" bit of limp wristing may provide enough resistance for slide cycling, but direct brass right at your coconut.

One needs a consistently firm grip for proper function and ejection of brass.

I can assure you neither my grip nor limpwristing are the issue. The gun cycles fine. No issues there. It WAS sending the empties straight up, and usually the last round would land on top of my hat.
Now, they all fling far over my head, landing behind me. For me, the issue is resolved.

Not sure if this would be of any help or not, But i heard these two older guys talking at the range to other day and they said that Viagra helps with thier ejection problems??
I was wearing my ear protectors but i am pretty sure thats what they said!

You heard wrong -- that helps with chambering. Ejection is another issue! :p
