That's correct, thanks to Rick's excellent 'how to' posting I went ahead and ordered a set of hammer springs #26576 from Wolff's for my P95. I started out putting in the 20# spring and it took exactly 8 minutes from start to finish. That 20# spring really improved the trigger pull a lot and then I decided to go ahead and see how the 19# felt. I installed the 19# in less than 5 minutes a wow, the trigger feels fantastic now. What an improvement and it is so easy and inexpensive. While I was working on the pistol I drifted the rear sight off and removed the firing pin block assembly, checked for any wear and then cleaned it out real good. It's amazing how much dirt can get in there after 5 years of shooting, but now it's nice, clean and lubricated. The 20# spring is now going in my P97 and the 21# will just become an extra.

I then took it to the range and fired off a box of WWB and they all fired perfect. The primer indent looks very good and consistant. I'll try some other brands in a few days but based on the primer strikes I don't think there'll be any issues with any other brands.

I would urge anyone who wants to improve the double action feel on a P series to take a crack at this, it's well worth the effort.

Thanks again RNettles!

I'm glad you're happy!:D

I've heard that CCI Blazers have hard primers...and you may encounter Fail to Ignites... But I've done Hornady, Federal and WWB with no troubles at all... Congrats on the "new" DA...[8D]

Yes he is to blame with me as well that SOB (sweet old boy) because of Rnettles I now have a SP 101 and GP 100 with 10 lbs hammer springs and a P90 and 345 with 19lbs hammer springs. Yes, Sir Rnettles is to blame thank you very much for making shooting more fun.

P.S. my wife thanks you too because before I put the lower spring in she could not pull the trigger on the SP101, but now she can.
