I hear you there. The take apart is always sooo much easier than the put together. :?

Re: P83 Firing pin and decocker issues

Well at least now you know for sure what the firing pin problem was, easy / cheap to fix too.
I am not familiar with the P83 safety setup so I do not know if there is only 1 detent, although I would suspect only 1. And nice to know the FP is not broken.

Re: P83 Firing pin and decocker issues

Hmmmmm. Well you could remove the pin and spring before hand and see what kind of shape they are in before ordering. I am suspicious, I don't think I have ever heard a whole firing pin rattle. Especially if there is a spring around it. I wonder if it is something else that is doing the rattle dance.

Re: P83 Firing pin and decocker issues

is the pin broken maybe? That may account for the rattling?

Re: Can't get slide on with Wolff recoil springs

Is the muzzle end of the spring round or flat? It needs to be flat as the heavier springs seem to be of a mite thicker diameter wire and are therefore a bit longer. Flattening it with a piece of sandpaper will do the trick.

Re: Newby with double fire issue

DJ I wish you luck in resolving your problems and hope we have been some help to you. Please let us know what your trigger weight on SA turns out to be and if your smith finds a way to increase the weight, that knowledge would benefit quite a few of us here. Good luck sir.

Re: Newby with double fire issue

Djmier, I am not aware of a way to increase the single action trigger pull weight as the pull weight with the stock sear is so light so replacing it with another stock sear will not get you anywhere in that direction. Short of making a custom sear to increase the SA pull weight, an action that would...

Re: Newby with double fire issue

djmier, I am sorry I forget the spring question. Swapping out the springs usually involves both the recoil and hammer springs. These can be had at Wolff Springs, https://www.gunsprings.com/POLISH%20/P64%20/cID1/mID49/dID196. My suggestion is to get the recoil spring calibration pak as it gives you 3...

Re: P64 Trigger works fine until top slide on pistol

Does the trigger work in single action mode? And does the safety also work as it is supposed to?

Re: I just bought a broken P64...

And NO it is NOT safe to fire in that condition. You may possibly find a smith that will weld it back together and reshape it for proper function but DO NOT fire it in it's current condition.
