One of those "Well there's your problem" moments...

Post by Chris_D on Sun Sep 02, 2012 7:26 am

During the WI State match, I had a malfunction with my Clark 1911. During sustained fire, I was not able to pull the trigger back, like an idiot I tried to push the slide forward so I couldn't call an alibi. The same problem seemed to occur later in the match again but I was able to get the gun to fire that time.

I took the gun apart yesterday and when I pushed the trigger back to remove it, out pops a primer anvil, the thing that looks like a nuclear symbol. After a good cleaning and getting things back together again, the gun was normal again. It must have been working itself in and out of blocking the trigger from moving back.

Ole Murphy raises his ugly head again. Why is it always during an important match?

That's interesting! At least you found the issue and it was not a live primer that helped you find it!

Chris fired his first 100 slow fire in that match too! Thought I would toot his horn for him. Nice job Chris!
