Dude.

Don't start swapping parts. Or at least, at this point, put all the parts back on the guns they belong to.

There's something wrong with the trigger bar. (Curious if you have a pic of it, but it's just curiousity). Makes me wonder if someone replaced an original part with an incorrect one, or did some bad trigger gunsmithing.

Either get Walther to take it in for warranty, or order a new spare from Walther and install it yourself.

Walther's email shows a lack of understanding of the issue, btw. Your 3rd vid (showing the striker movement) was the most important one. That slow "creep forward" shouldn't happen.

Was this ever resolved? I just got an early Gen 1, 9mm, and it's doing the same thing.

I'd suggest you follow the advice given to the OP of this thread. If an inspection of the pistol, in the places that were suggested, don't result in pinpointing the issue, then send it to Walther.

No the issue was never resolved. Walther USA wouldn't take it. I just had to sell it and cry a little. Lol. BUT Walther baffles me because on the issue they showed horrible CS but on my other Gen 1 the barrel appeared to have pitting and not much rifling in the barrel so I contacted them about buying a new barrel because I knew they wouldn't help, and to my surprise I talked to a different CS rep. He told me to send in my barrel and they'd send me a new one for free. They paid shipping. So that impressed me. Seems like they are hit or miss and depends on who you deal with and how much they really want to help.

An update on mine: I sent it to Earl's and they did an excellent job. Not inexpensive, but I also had them tune everything up while it was there (and got night sights). Very quick turnaround, and their work is excellent.

Too bad Walther didn't take care of what was clearly an issue. One suggestion to get any gun manufacturers attention, I don't advocate lying per say but if you use the terms "it seems unsafe" and "on a couple of occasions I think it fired 2 rounds with one trigger pull" will ensure they take your concerns seriously.

Hate to bring up an old forum but my gen 1 split trigger is having this same exact issue save for one additional detail: it won't fire even in DA. So when the firing pin is released and starts to follow the trigger back to the DA position, if I attempt to pull the trigger fully rearward nothing happens. So under both single action and DA the striker will simply not be released. So I've been without my EDC for about a year now. I happened upon this thread hoping for a solution at the end...

Have you contacted Walther USA about this ? When I sent my PPS M2 in for the recall I got it back a week later.
