Occasional GP100-22LR hang-up:

Once in a while, most often in double action, the trigger will not pull. I need to pop open the cylinder and re-close it then it functions just fine.

Has anyone seen this before?

Thanks

mike_o, Next time it happens, try pushing the trigger forward. I think the problem is "trigger reset", meaning the trigger must reset fully forward before it can be pulled again. Cause? Could be a reduced power trigger spring, maybe some machining crumbs in the action, a trigger plunger problem, or other issues that impede trigger movement. These types of problems are virtually impossible to diagnose via the Internet.

My own GP100-22 was a real pain …. probably the worst Ruger firearm I ever bought. It had all sorts of machining issues that left it rough. It took a couple hours on the work bench to get everything smoothed out the way it should have been from the factory. Now, my 22 LR GP100 functions perfect.

Thanks

Thanks much Iowegan for the insight, I do have a reduced power trigger spring so Ill take a close look. I did polish all the internals and it functions very smooth. I'ts an occasional problem, as I said, but I do seek close to perfection as possible.

Have a great day.

took a look....

Not trigger reset, just tried that. Guess I'll take it all apart, clean it well and look for any artifacts.

Try it with the factory trigger spring.

Mine had a similar issue. Initially i thought it was lead shavings binding between the cylinder and forcing cone. However it even did it when it was clean. I eventually sent it back to Ruger. They spent a few weeks trying to pin point the problem and could not figure it out. They ended up sending me a brand new gun. New one works perfectly.

Thanks for the feedback radny97, I'll keep that option in mind but hopefully won't have to take that route.
