How it all works, with a digitized British voice.

Nice video!

The 'out of battery' sear release I described in post #14

... is shown by the red arrows in the screeshots here and here.

So, I did a detailed strip of the slide tonight. it was pretty dirty, so a good cleaning was in order.

SIXG17S- regarding the photo comments in your post #4 in this thread, I didn't see anything funny on the tip of the striker that would account for the mark you noted.

As far as that triangle shaped mark you also noted, that is actually machined into the breech face of my slide. See the attached photo. Anyone know why it is there?

Also, I noted a fair amount of wear on the extractor, and a slight gouge mark you can see in one of the attached pics. Is this cause for concern? Does it need replacement?

Finally, the firing pin spring. I measured mine, uncompressed, and it was only 2.390". When I ordered the Wolff recoil spring, the package came with a reduced power firing spring as well, which i have not used. I measured it and it is indeed 2.54" So i guess i need to replace the FP spring.

For what it's worth...

In my opinion, cleaning the pistol and a new 'standard power' firing pin spring may fix the light primer strike problem.

Please note that it's very important to ensure that the firing pin channel is clean all the way to the breech wall. The firing pin 'floats' the last 1/8" or so of travel and must be 'free' to do so to maintain sufficient momentum to strike the primer properly.

Also, in my opinion, the noted wear really doesn't warrant replacing the extractor... unless you're having extraction related issues.

The triangle shaped mark machined into the breech face of your slide appears to be part of the milling operation that cut the extractor slot. The breech face of my slides have similar marks.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,

Bob
