Trigger Bar - HELP!!

Post by tmann11 » April 4th, 2007, 10:40 am

I was cleaning my P-64 and noticed that when I put it back together the trigger was not working properly. After several hours, its seems that the trigger bar is not seated properly and I can't seem to put it back together correctly. Is there a trick to this before I send it to someone for repair. I'm sure it is real simple as all I was doing was a general cleaning. Anybody?

Did you remove the trigger bar while cleaning? It comes off very easily, but getting it back together with it's spring correctly positioned can be VERY difficult. I suspect that the spring is not correctly fitted. See a number of posts here about tricks that we have developed for getting it back together.

I have tried to follow these directions, but I am not very familiar with the "lingo" and I don't see any pics that help reference the process. I have a few pics but can't post them at this time for some odd reason. I can forward them if anyone is interested in walking me through the procedure.

Norm,

Amazing information, THANKS!!!! That is by far the best way to get the spring in place. Unfortunately the trigger spring will not hold tension and comes off every single time. In fact, it will not hold duing a DA pull, and only a few times in SA. Any other ideas?

Thanks.

Thomas

Norm,

Thanks again!!! Incredible and accurate information. I am grateful and have ordered the springs as advised. I will replace both which will hopefully resolve my problem.

Thanks.

Happens to me often with 2 of my 4 P-64's... I have gotten really quick at putting the spring back on top of the trigger bar with a paper clip to assist. I can do it in about 20 seconds... Took me an hour the first time.

TTH,

Thanks for the insight, now I'm concerned about replacing the trigger return spring. I'm assuming that someone has done this before and can help advise.

Thanks again.

Norm,

I received the springs and followed the instructions. Thanks for all of your expertise and support. I doubt that I could have done this without your directions.

Hail to the P-64 God....that's you Norm.

Thanks again.

Thomas
