And you need to make sure that the alignment of trigger and frame holes are perfect as ANY misalignment will keep the pin from going through. AND it MAY be possible that a small, very very small amount of fitt...

Re: Recoil pain. Am I holding it wrong?

potatoe, tomatoe. This started about someone saying the P64 hurt him when he shot it. Can you get back to the main focus if this post.

Re: Another P83 Decocker with trouble.

That is certainly an option. Other option is disassembly and see what condotion the safety barrel internals are in. Sorry that did not work but at least you have eliminated dried cosmo as the reason.
