From kansascity45: Grayguns P - Series Perfection Action Kit

Did an initial install of Grayguns' Sig P-Series 'Master Kit' today. At least, the frame components - Trigger, Hammer, Sear, Safety lever and mainspring. I've noted a few install hints if you're gonna DIY.

Here's the pistol and P-Pak kit:



The installed trigger has nice rounded edges & a wide face for comfy finger placement - has an adjustment set screw that controls the trigger's travel. I made no adjustment. Make sure that you position the trigger's axle pin properly to install the locking block - that the pin's left end's slots are horizonal to slightly higher in the front. It'll help to hold the trigger forward while inserting the locking block too.



And, the installed hammer looks like the stock hammer. If you've never installed a Sig P gun hammer - CAUTION - Take great care to place the hammer reset spring's tang on the topside of it's pivet bar inside the hammer strut. Don't slip the hammer in straight down, but slide it in from the rear at an angle like the hammer was cocked.

Make sure the reset spring is on top of it's bar by gently pulling the hammer rearward - you should feel the reset spring holding the hammer in the frame. Then you can insert the hammer axle pin, making sure the hammer rotates smoothly.

Also, make sure the trigger bar spring is properly installed on both ends.

Grayguns includes a 19lb & 17lb main (hammer) spring in these kits. I used the 17, which feels good to me on this target pistol.

FYI, another caution - make sure you place the hammer spring strut's top pivot point on the underside of the same bar the reset spring is on. it's easy to place this strut's top too far forward on the hammer's axle - and the hammer doesn't function...



Then the safety lever, sear and sear spring can go home.



The new trigger feels real smooth, with a very nice reset and super light SA.



The kit also includes the slide springs - a firing pin return & firing pin block short/long springs. I may do these on another day. NOW, we gotta get this gal to the range!!

Cheers

Driven the roll pin from the rightside to remove the firing pin & safety block.



Make sure the safety block and firing pin are in the correct position.



Doesn't hurt to polish up the block's sides while it's out. Depress the block, so the firing pin will slide into it's channel.



I don't like beating on my guns with a hammer, so use a vise to carefully press in the roll pin. Very light lube on the pin doesn't hurt, hold the firing pin in while the roll pin is goes in.



Easy Peasy!!



Very carefully complete the roll pin's return with 3/32 roll pin punch.



Grayguns includes Lucas Oil's gun grease .. seems pretty good to, if you don't mind your pistol smelling a little bet like a automotive transmission - which I kind'a like!!



Cheers

I can see this has been out for a few years, but it's new to me, "And I Thank You"
While i'm on here, How many peeps go to YouTube so they can leave a thumbs up, I try to most of the time. I just think all these video makers should get as many likes as they can. Unlike a President that gives himself one.
