Creed Hammer Problem

Anyone experience an issue with the hammer not fully seating? After about 100 rounds through a new Creed, the hammer failed. I could see that it wasn't fully seated as it was protruding a bit with a round chambered. Pulling the trigger brought the hammer back but there was no break and the hammer wouldn't fall.

The guy at the range looked it and pressed a release inside that caused the hammer to fully seat, and then it worked after that. I am assuming this issue may have been caused by "limp-wristing" as I had just fired 4 rounds with my weak-hand.

Not sure whether I should send it back to Walther now, or wait to see if it happens again. It's just a range gun, not a defense piece.

I would not send it back for repair. Semiautomatic pistols like to be held firmly in order to operate properly.

Agreed 9mm. I would run a couple hundred more rounds through it and see what happens. With a firm grip of course.

Limp wristing?

Why does everyone default to that?

Have the guy at the store show you what he did.

That way, you can fix it yourself next time. Oh, and by the way, if there is a next time, that pistol MUST go back to Walther for repair. It should not happen AT ALL.

I wouldn't say I defaulted to that. I was shooting one-handed with my weak hand at the time, so it seemed a reasonable explanation.

However, it just happened again a few days ago while my mom was shooting. I was able to "fix" just like the guy at the store showed me, but this definitely should not be happening. Guess it's going back to Walther now.
