Is there more to the Umarex/Walther story that we have not heard? What does "beating up" refer to?

OK, just read that thread.....all million pages. Didn't see one good picture of a dismounted trigger bar showing the area of impact clearly. If I had one I would inspect it with the trigger pulled so that the trigger bar was in the forward position, then I would lock and unlock the barrel to see exactly what is being whacked.

Obviously semi autos have a number of parts slamming back and forth which nearly always results in at a minimum...finish wear. Springs weaken, slide catch arms get swagged a bit as can the hammer end of a firing pin. Some things are unavoidable to a certain degree and should progress very slowly until the owner knows it is time for a trip to the mother ship or a gunsmith or a new part.

While the PPS wear looks bad and is unacceptable in my opinion I didn't read where it is effecting operation of the pistol. No stoppages, no failure to fire and most importantly......no unintended firing. I think I would take a close look at removing some material from the trigger bar....but, I don't have one so that is all I can say about that.. With regard to the CCP, failure of the drop safety poses a much more serious problem....this would be akin to the firing pin block failing from damage/poor design in a P99 when I hit the decocker......the decocker releases the striker which must be stopped by a fail proof block.....fail proof, or the pistol is going to fire. Obviously this doesn't happen so Walther has properly designed, manufactured and hardened the parts.

Some times you just need to move on......bought a Smith .22 compact....had a terrible barrel, three of em......gave it away to someone who didn't care. 9" groups at 21' won't float my boat and I looked at 10 more of these in local gun shops....same bad barrels. No further interest in those pistols. I would like to get my hands on a PPS M2 just to see what is going on. 1917

I got a bag full of P22 parts I'll sell you OF....not enough to put a pistol together but all in all...they weigh more than 1 pistol. They already come well broken in or just plain broken.....Hurry up before someone ups the ante to $50.01.....

Question for any of you who might have the new style drop safety.....does your pistol have the post change dimple inside the mag well? If not, it looks like Walther will be wanting the new and old style pistols shipped back. Which means....the revised safety apparently isn't up to spec.....either.

Just a FYI cause you don't have one and I know you're anxiously waiting for a $50 special! The trigger bar moves forward when the slide is moving forward back to battery. The pulling of the trigger actually pulls the bar rearward. That rearward movement forces the trigger bar tab to actuate the striker safety allowing the striker to spring full forward. So, if you do much honing on the trigger bar tab and aren't judicious about the amount that's removed that could force the tab to pass under the striker safety and not allow the striker to move forward. The "peening" is caused when the trigger moves forward, the trigger bar is forced forward and then strikes the left rear barrel lug.

Don't post photos like that.....then everyone will want a sharp shard and pretty soon Umarex will charge extra!
