P64 Trigger Bar Issue

Post by czerka » January 8th, 2014, 8:52 pm

A customer recently brought me a P64 for repair. Intial inspection I discovered it was missing the trigger return spring and the decocker sear was brke of on the end. I replaced the required parts and reassembled the gun but the DA and the decocker would not function, SA action worked with no problem. I removed the grips and discovered that by applying significant pressure to the tail end of the trigger bar the DA would function fine. I have been over it and over it and I cannot figure out what I am overlooking. Anyone have any ideas, I would greatly appreciate any input, thanks.

Have you gone through this manual to make sure everything is there and in working order?

There might be something out of place or missing that you aren't realizing because you are not familiar with them.

Norm Sutton sells a better Trigger Return Spring.

Also if you post detailed pictures with the grips off, some one might spot something to help you.

Thanks, I will look over the manual and see if I missed something also I will try to get some pics up soon. The trigger spring I put in it came from Norm.

In all likelihood the trigger spring is either worn out or broken off or weakened enough that it is slipping past the stud on the trigger bar. Norm has excellent step by step instructions and photos to walk you right through it. Stay safe and well.

I have re-arsenaled and brought back to like-new 80+ of these guns. My experience shows that most of the time this problem is caused by a worn-faulty disconnector and/or weak trigger spring.
Replacing these two parts has solved the problem for me.

The trigger spring is brand new I just bought from norm but will try replacing the disconnector like you said. Luckily I just happened to buy one of those armors P64's from century about a year ago so I have something to canniblized. Thanks for all the assistance.

Also, use a SMALL amount of good gun grease on the disconnector before you put it back in its slot.

You should also know that if you have any spare safeties, there have been a lot of people looking for them. I'd keep one or two. But if you have a few, they are in demand.

I know this is an old post, and I don't know if the poster ever fixed his gun, but the manual helped me fix mine. The trigger bar had dropped out and I could not restore function on without this manual. The trigger spring tang has to be locked into the notch in the second post on the trigger bar. That did it. Thanks

Slight problems or minor incorrect assembly/fix of the trigger spring, new or not, can cause problems. (Ask me how I know... :( ) You need to check it with a LIGHT to see in that darn little hole! A slight misalignment, bend, too short when cutting or missing the groove (as noted above) can drive you nuts.
