Hey Gordo,

About Walther Arms

It sure sounds good, doesn't it. Too bad when the rubber meets the road and there are problems that take time and money to correct, it's all empty talk and marketing BS.

I would never take a pistol apart.....no telling what you might find in one. 1917

I'm inclined to agree that the OP's "trigger assembly" (#24 in the parts diagram), or its aptly described "horn", is not properly aligned.

FWIW, the forward edge on my horn has a factory bevel that seems to make contact with the barrel even less likely.
How about some good pictures? 1917

Guess I'm going to stop by a local gun shop and have a look at this....you guys have my curiosity up. I'm not sure what the so called horn does....act as a guide or a disconnect or both. Looks like a simple bubba fix might be required. 1917

The horn presses upward on the striker safety as the trigger is pulled thus allowing the round to fire.

Thanks, hit three gun shops......no PPS classics or M2. Did see one Walther Creep (sic) tagged that way. No CCPs either....no P22s and only one PPQ......but, as usual if you wanted a Glock, Smith or Springfield.....take your pick. 1917

In re-reading I noticed it sounded as though the horn might be pushing straight up when the trigger is pulled. The trigger bar actually moves in essentially a straight line to the rear and the horn passes under the striker safety. The increased height and angled rear portion of the horn moves across the bottom of the striker safety and forces the safety upward. Hope that is clear??

Got it.....how about a picture of the upside down slide sitting right next to the frame just like it would sit...firearm loaded, striker cocked. From what I can gather the forward piece (horn) has one job.....cause the firing pin block to be engaged so that it blocks the striker when the slide is closed and the trigger is forward. Pull the trigger and the trigger bar horn moves off the firing pin block allowing it to disengage......I see no reason for any contact with the right side of the barrel chamber. OldFart and I would bubba it immediately.

We'd take a look at how much material could be removed from either the trigger bar horn or the right side of the chamber or both.......and then put a few hundred in the 10 ring.

On the other hand.....if there are Members here with some PPS M2s that absolutely do not have this issue.....there should be some good photos and measurements taken until the difference between the parts can be seen.....angle of the horn, height, width of the chamber area, depth of the existing cut on the right side of the chamber......something. If Walther gunsmiths have looked at a number of these firearms, some with interference issues and some not.....they should know exactly what is going on. 1917

The striker block is held in the safe position by spring tension. As the trigger is pressed the horn moves forward depressing the block to allow the striker to be able to reach the primer. My Classic has no damage.
