Smoothing out trigger uptake

I isolated the friction to the striker assembly.

Safely disassemble the pistol.

Take apart striker assembly.

Polish out the striker where it meets the spring.

Polish the 3 square prongs where it meets with the plastic housing.

Smoothed things out tremendously.

It does help some. This subject was covered pretty well on the old PPSTalk forum. Unfortunately, most of the "friction" is created by the striker spring stacking and bulging against the sides of the striker well walls. I even went as far as polishing the striker well in the slide and the outside surface of the spring itself. It all helps a little but in the end, it is still a striker-fired mechanism with its inherent properties.

Thanks for posting the info and pictures. Like I said, every little bit helps.

Further upgrade - bad? Will be putting up pics later...

Used an old trick I learned from my ownership of the Steyr M40-A1..
had some 1500-2500 grit sandpaper (available at an automotive store under the "finishing" section of the paint area). Using 2500 and a flat-blade screwdriver, I polished and BARELY rounded the back edge of the release bar (in the grip/frame, not on the striker).

Since then, I've got the trigger release down to about 5.1lbs, but it resets liquid smooth, and it doesn't have a hard snappy release (upwards of 8lbs percieved when I got the pistol). Can't tell if it made the release further forward, or if it's just so smooth now I don't realize I'm at the release point...
Also, for the record, my release is now at the same point as the Airsoft/Umarex PPS I picked up... :P

Does anyone have a link to a DIYer to change out the "H" disconnect to the "S" disconnect. I sure would appreciate any pointers.

My first PPS trigger is some what gritty, help.

I purchased a PPQ for my birthday, its great. I became a forum member and became interested on the PPS. Well I just got my new PPS, and I notice the triger was some what on the positive side which I like but gritty as well which I dislike. I made a run to the range to shoot it and see if just a little work out will help settle things out. It shoots like a dream. After 100rds it did get a little better, but the grittyness is still very noticeable specialy on the reset. I have read some of the information here and its great, I wish it had more details on the break down and smothing things out. I'm more a hands on type of person, and a little skeptical on taking the task on hand. I can work a Glock with my eyes closed, I have had them for ever. Walthers are new to me, will appreciate your help.

Thanks

Great post. I used Wizards Polish cloth to hit mine up. It's amazing how smooth the trigger reset became after doing your trick. Thanks for the info.

do you have to polish the entire striker? or just the 3 squares? what about the flat blocks right next to the firing pin ?
