Pennsylvania / Re: New Walther PPK trigger pull

You can't get around PPK/s heavy first trigger pull, it's just how they are. I wouldn't go tinkering with polishing or clipping off spring coils or really even swapping in new springs. If she can't pull it, she should get a different pistol. If you're stuck with it, consider practicing thumbing the hammer back. But that's another move to have to do before shooting - don't carry it with the safety OFF with round in chamber. or "israeli carry" and practice racking the slide before shooting the first round.

Did they let you dry fire one in the shop? I doubt if there's really much you could do that wouldn't either make it unsafe/unreliable or cost a good chunk of a new gun price. The manual lists DA at 13.4 pounds and SA at over 6 pounds, and I've shot some that feel even harder than that. If it's the .22 model, it's spec'd at almost 18 pounds DA trigger pull. I don't know what the Bersa is listed as, but the DA trigger on those feels a lot less.

Cylinder & Slide will tune it up for a couple hundred bucks https://cylinder-slide.com/Item/CSM334

Wolff makes a kit with 4 different reduced power hammer springs that could make it a little lighter. That might be a good place to start if you're going to stick with this pistol. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1004168689
Muscle memory, "getting used to it", and just breaking it in some, might help. If it's a carry gun for her to protect herself with, the less things to have to worry about or think about if you need it in a hurry the better. If it's not something you think she'll want to deal with, you might just have to see what you can get back out of it and put that toward an easier to use gun.
Pennsylvania / New Walther PPK trigger pull
« Last post by Gun Guy on April 02, 2020, 01:40:51 PM »
What can be done with the trigger pull with the PPK ? I bought one for my wife, it is awful ! I do not know how they can sell any of them, there is no way my wife can pull it. If I had had a chance to fire one first i would have NEVER bought it.

Any suggestions ?   Gun Guy

Olympic Arms folded in 2017 too.  IIRC, Colt no longer makes ARs for civilian market either.

The market is good and saturated with AR makers. It's not a shock that lots of them are going under, but is kind of surprising to see the big names going away. It'll even out with Daniel Defense, LMT, LaRue, POF, LWD at the top of the market and Smith & Wesson, Diamondback, ATI, Palmetto State picking up the mid to lower range markets. I don't know how well they're selling, but I wouldn't be surprised if Springfield takes the SAINT and gets out too.

ETA: and that's still quite a few!
Local Costco has implemented a 5 item limit on bottled water, disinfectants , sugar, and rice.

At least they have it in stock. A guy I work out with says Walmart has the same policy for bleach and sanitizer, not sure about the other stuff.

I can't go anywhere now without either getting into or overhearing conversations about it. It's on everyone's radar now.

News is to sell stories. If. Virus is more catchy then thatís what the news will cover
