Dynamic disassembly!

Hey Troops,

I posted this on my home gun board..... And am working my way through the problems sticky....

I picked up a used Wlather CCP at a local fun shop a couple of weeks ago.... Took it home cleaned it, and carried it for a couple of weeks, (I know.... Untested firearm.... Duh!). I took it to the range today.... Fired a couple of mags with several feed jams with ball Ammo (Blazer brass), was just beginning to think hmmmmm.... Fred, you just bought someone else's headache.... But maybe just a few more mags, will loosen things up....When..... SHAAAPOING!!! the slide goes merrily down range..... The lower remains in my slightly confused hands.... Well.... That was exciting! I noticed the firing pin retaining cap and firing pin spring (whatever Walther calls them) were nowhere to be found..... That gun is retired for the day..... If not forever..... A shame I kinda like the way it handles....

The joys of buying used I guess.... I am guessing the cap must have failed, as I am certain that I assembled it correctly....
Even though it has kind of an odd take down.... Sorta like an overly complicated P-7.... (I am an armorer on three other guns) There was no obvious damage.... Other then a little road rash on the back of the slide.....

So what do ya think..... Should I bring it up at the store I bought it.... Or cry to Walther to get the missing parts?

I have a feeling, I'm S.O.O.L.... But it still kinda sucks.....

Thanks!
Fred

P.S. A pox on all those that sell broken or sick guns!

I kinda figured it is on me..... I buy A LOT of used guns..... And have gotten really lucky..... With the exception of A POS Taurus Tracker in .17HMR..... Have never really been bitten..... I own 4-5 Walther's and admit to being a bit of a fan-boy for them.... (I still need a P-99 in 9mm.... as I sold my (and all) of my .40's!) I'm a 9mm and .45 guy from now on!

I am a little disappointed.... as I read all the reviews of the CCP (before buying it), most of which complain about a crappy and gritty trigger..... Mine is as smooth as glass.... I have lost enough weight to carry appendix.... For the first time in my frigging life! Which is why I bought it.... Why oh why.... do I fall in love with The German guns.... (Ask me about trading my first "Model of U.S. ARMY 1911" (not A1) for a Sig 229.... That I just had to have! (Sigh).

For $250 bucks.... It ain't the end of the world.... I have lost (much) more at ParXs.... I'm just wondering if it is worth buying the parts that achieved escape velocity.... And are now in geo-stationary orbit.... Or just melt the puppy down at my next marshmallow toast!

Life ain't fair.... Win some.... lose some.... I guess!

Why don't you just send it back to Ft. Smith for warranty work?

Hey Guys,

I reached out to Walther, and they sent me the following parts.... (No charge! striker spring, spring guide, locking catch hook, and locking catch. In putting it back together,
I noticed the the rear roll pin was completely within the slide.... Which I'm sure caused my problems.... I am unsure if I caused the pin to move, when I broke it down for cleaning, or if it was a "gift" from the previous owner..... Has anyone tried anything to keep the pin from backing out.... Maybe a drop of red lock tight, from the outside of the pin?

Thanks!
Fred

P.S. It now function checks fine.... But will shoot it next week..... And won't carry it until I do!
