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...

Re: Standard TP9SFX Magazine Base Plates

Anxious to hear how the ebay ones work. Report back if you can Lefty. I'm considering ordering some myself. The ones I ordered from eBay are due today (Saturday, Feb. 9th). 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...

Re: Standard TP9SFX Magazine Base Plates

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 ...

My wife and I shoot in anything that involves pulling a trigger. We do mostly local shoots (within an hour drive) and is a mix of USPSA, IDPA, 2 Gun and Outlaw matches.

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...

Re: Canik TP9-SFX trigger upgrades?

One of the Freedomsmith triggers (Fat Daddy or Racer), a reduced power safety plunger spring (p/n: RP-FPBS) from Cajun Gun Works and 500 rounds of ammo will give you a good place to start if you are looking for a crisp break, lighter trigger pull and a short take up and reset.

What does this mean at the top of the FS site?

"All Canik triggers are now equipped with heavy duty safety levers"

Was there as issue?
Some shooters had the safety lever break if it wasn’t fully depressed before a trigger pull.

Re: Slide won’t fully close

Make sure your trigger bar isn't coming in contact with the barrel. I've seen the trigger bar twist inward just enough to come into contact with the barrel hood and not allowing the slide to move forward. Easy to see if you know to look for it. Good luck.

Re: Anyone know the exact size roll pin punch needed for the tiny roll pin that holds the take down tab in place?

Looks here: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=85&p=437#p437 Thanks!, some really good information from your link. “Our beloved frankthetank mentions in his video about using a 1/16" diameter punch to drive out that pin.

Did mine today, used a 1/16" roll pin punch.
Now that’s a head scratcher, that’s the size I tried the first time and it was too big.

Thanks for the reply.

Anyone know the exact size roll pin punch needed for the tiny roll pin that holds the take down tab in place on the Canik TP9SFx? I'm guessing 1/32" but I can't find a punch that size although I did find some nail set punches that are 1/32" but they are tapered from the tip to a larger diameter and ...
