My FP lifter (sometimes) does not lift high enough

Recommended Posts

...to drop the hammer, DA or SA. 


But when I push on the right side safety, even just so slightly, I can visually see the lifter (from the back) lift high enough and drops the hammer 100% of the time, DA or SA.


I have a suspect the trigger bar spring has something to do with this. What does the trigger bar spring exactly do? Thank you.

The FP lifter doesn't prevent the hammer from dropping, only the firing pin from moving forward. So if the hammer is not dropping, the lifter is only incidental, not a cause.

Do you have an overtravel adjustment on the trigger that is perhaps set too long?
