Re: Freedomsmith trigger = light strikes

I picked up some 1/16th and some M1.5 roll pins. Neither one will fit. They are both too large. They won't go in the hole in the tab nor in the pin the tab fits on. I contacted Century to get a replacement. I chamfered the ends of both sizes cleaned up any burrs, and they still didn't fit. Simply t...

Re: Freedomsmith trigger = light strikes

Now I need a replacement for that damn little roll pin that fits in the takedown tabs. It got away from me when I was trying to put it back in. Anyone know what size that little sucker is? Here you go... I wasn’t sure if you prefer millimeters or inches so I did both. If you can’t find a replacemen...

Re: Freedomsmith trigger = light strikes

Alright, The striker channel is clean and dry. The pistol will launch a brand new pencil about 6" above the muzzle. I primed 10 resized cases and they all went bang. So I loaded up the other 90 rounds. They all drop and spin in both the barrel and my EGW case gauge. I headed to the range and no joy...

Re: Freedomsmith trigger = light strikes

Field strip the gun and make sure the striker is moving freely by depressing the safety plunger and physically moving the striker back and forth. You may need to take the striker our of the slide and make sure the striker channel is clean and clear. I've seen Qtips leave fuzz behind and cause proble...

Do they come with the male lock plate that fits just above the base plate?
No, base plate only. The new base plates use the OEM locking plate.

Re: Standard TP9SFX Magazine Base Plates

I received my TP9SFX base plates today and just finished putting them on some mags for you all to see. They seem to fit well and as you can see from the photos they are slightly larger than the stock 18 round base plates. For me, that’s a good thing as they are slightly beveled out to allow a good g...

I'll put them on the mags and report back but I won't have a chance to try them with any live fire practice for a little while...

I have Googled and searcher here with no luck. I need some standard magazine base plates? The +2 it comes with are two big for some competitions. Any help on finding some standard OEM bases like on the 17 Rd Magazines? I don't need any $20 aluminum ones, just stock! Thanks! Not OEM but an option. I...

Re: Tuning Freedomsmith Trigger

I agree with you, the back of the safety tab is definitely closer to the frame than mine.

Re: Tuning Freedomsmith Trigger

This is a picture of my Racer I installed after having a safety tab fail (old style) on the Fat Daddy. In all fairness to Freedomsmith, I’m partly to blame for the safety breaking as I have a tendency to press low on the trigger shoe and not pressing the safety all the way in before a good press on ...

Re: What does your screen name mean?

I joined a golf forum about 25 years ago and needed a screen name. I'm from Ohio and I'm left handed, so I came up with OhioLefty. I know, that took a lot of thought. I use it in multiple forums that span many different interests.

The trigger install is easy enough, any tips on replacing the safety in the trigger?

Go slow and pay special attention to how the safety tab spring is positioned in the trigger shoe.

Re: MAJOR FREEDOMSMITH TRIGGER FAILURE!!!!

Same thing happened to me. I was practicing at the range before a match and the trigger went dead in the middle of a practice stage. Actually not really dead as the safety is still doing what it is supposed to do, preventing the trigger from being depressed without disengaging the safety tab behind ...

Re: Canik TP9-SFX trigger upgrades?

If you want to reduce the trigger pull even more, then try a lighter striker spring. I tried a stock Glock striker spring (~5.5#?) and it worked for a while but I started to have a few light strikes in matches. I changed the striker spring to a Wolff 6.5# XP striker spring and haven't had anymore li...
