Model 41 failure to fire Empty Model 41 failure to fire

I have a two year old Model 41 with about 5100 rounds fired.  On 4 or 5 occasions during this time the pistol would not fire.  I pulled the trigger and nothing happened.  I ejected the round (no firing pin dent) and loaded another and still nothing.  It has happened twice during a matches and I had to abandon the rim-fire portion of the match, OUCH.

Last week it happened during practice and I was able to do some investigating.  I found that the trigger would hit the trigger stop without releasing the hammer.  There was no resistance during trigger pull.  It behaved like a magazine was not in place to engage the trigger bar with the sear.  As a minimum I will give the pistol a good cleaning, but I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem and if there are any suggested fixes?

I had that happen in the past & found that I was bumping the safety just enough to stop the release but not enough to notice or stop the slide.

Steve,
I used to have a problem bumping the safety too, so I bent the piece of metal that holds the safety to keep it in place.  I dont think I could engage the safety now if I wanted to.
