Hey, after owning the HK45 for over a year now, I was wondering if there was any modification or aftermarket part to make the ejector pin functional. It does not bug me, but think it would be a cool addition to such an awesome pistol! If any of you know this, please do let me know!

What's an "ejector pin?"  Is this a Brit-English vs US-English issue? Does my .45ACP HK45C have one?

Oh, my bad! Yea, I am English. Well, I don't know what you call it, but I'm referring to the tab on the right side of the slide, with the red tip? I apologise.

I'm guessing you mean the Extractor?

I've not found an airsoft gun with a working extractor.  On the real pistol is extracts the empty cartridge case from the chamber when the slide recoils (during firing or firing).  Airsoft just leaves the BB in the chamber when manually racking the slide.

Serves as a visible loaded chamber indicator on the real gun.

Ok, cool! Thanks for your response! I am just wondering if the chamber indicator can be modified to make it functional, e.g: When slide is forward with round in chamber, the chamber indicator? projects upward slightly.

To act as a loaded chamber indicator the extractor would need to physically touch the BB and be pushed outward to make the red flag visible.  I don't think it's practical for this in airsoft as the nozzle and bucking are there.
