Recommended Posts

Hi, thank you for your videos on Youtube did really help to go around the Tanfoglio! I am an owner of a Tanfoglio and after following your videos and applying your suggestions and advices I have a problem with my gun. After installing the upper slider and loading the hammer does not stay in position neither 1st or 2nd. After trying my longer upper slide it works perfectly. Any ideas what could cause this problem to my sort upper slider after disassembly cleaning and reassembling. Thanks in advance for your answer.

With no slide on, will hammer stay in full cock and half cock if manually cocking hammer back with thumb? 

Yes it does the hammer stays in both positions and with my second long slide on it does stay in both positions.

Which positions are you referring to as 1 and 2 and 3?

 

You have: hammer fully down (decocked) against the back of the slide.

 

Half-cock where the hammer is in the center.

 

And fully-cocked where the hammer is at the rear of it’s travel.

 

How do you have two different lengths of slide for a Stock 3?

What guns are these slides off of?

I am trying to explain that when the slide is on and with my thumb I pull back the hammer does not lock neither half-cock or fully-cocked. My gun is the tanfoglio THE ULTRA (limited)  the same with the STOCK 3 but it fits a second long slide P19

I can provide you with photos if necessary. Thank you in advance for your assistance!

If you cycle that slide will the hammer stay cocked? Or does it do the same as with your thumb?

 

The gun works correctly with the original slide, but not with your second slide installed?

 

Does the gun function test correctly with the slide removed?

 

You ARE trying to do all of these things with the safety in the *off* position, correct?

No it does not maintain half cock or fully cocked, neither if I cycle the slide and that is the original slide I am having the problem with.

 

it does not work with the original one after disassembled and cleaned the slide.

 

it works correctly with the slide off and/or while the longer (2nd slide) is on.

 

Of course safety off!!!

I bet you have a problem with the Firing Pin Block sticking down too far/installed wrong, if the firing pin block is pushing down on the sear arm it will hold the sear up causing the issue you are describing.

I would strip and reassemble the firing pin and firing pin block, then pop the slide back on the frame and check the hammer function, if it works without the FPB in then I would reassemble the slide with the firing pin and block and make sure the block is able to move freely then check again.

Thank you for the advice!!! Problem solved I suppose it was the pin block that was slightly higher as the spring was not positioned in the tiny hole. I reassembled it very attentively and it works perfect now! Thank you again for your time !!!
