Summary:  We construct the pure states of ${\cal O}_n$ that extend a given pure state of the fixed point algebra ${\cal F}_n$ of the gauge action, and we show that the gauge group acts transitively on these extensions. We apply this to construct and classify the ergodic endomorphisms of ${\cal B}({\cal H})$ whose tail algebra has a minimal projection. We discuss examples arising from product states of ${\cal F}_n$ and from the trace on the Choi subalgebra of ${\cal O}_n$.
