Perfectly timed excuse to get an EDC backup of your choice.
Shipped my PPS m2 out bout an hour ago.
Opened the safe and pulled out the back up, a (modded) S&W shield 9mm

Not drop safe is a serious issue. All dropping is is a shock to the pistol. The same shock can happen from banging the pistol into something...edge of a desk, truck door, etc...I can see no excuse for not sending the pistol in for repair. The rear end you save might be your own. 1917

I agree with everything here.

Everyone should be sending the pistol back if they have one that is effected. Safety should be paramount, before trigger quality or anything else. If the fix is simply changing the tab on the drop safety on the trigger, I'm wondering where this trigger pull quality hesitation is coming from.

1917-1911M, Decent point. Especially if someone carries their pistol pointed at their, well, you know what I mean. I have never understood that practice. In my opinion, it violates one of the primary gun safety rules: Never point your weapon at anything that you are not willing to destroy.

Can anyone tell yet just what the "fix" is? If it's just replacing a part with an updated one instead of the hassle of sending it in and not getting it back for six to eight weeks, I'll just swap the part out myself.

The recall web page has a number that you can call and ask that question

I've got the label, that part was easy.
Tomorrow I'll get the FedEx box.

From the wording on the web page, I get the problem is the trigger dingus.
Glock calls it a "trigger safety", but it's actually a "drop safety".

Mine seems to function correctly.
I don't see how it could fire on drop.

But, maybe they are changeing some other parts also.

Hope it works the same when it comes back.
Maybe I'll carry my Colt Model 1917, you can't pull that DA trigger by accident.
I know you're on this thread 1917-1911M.

I checked my recall gun against my no recall very carefully on the engagement on the trigger safety doohicky. They look to be exact and seem to have the same amount of engagement before allowing the trigger to move. Similar side play etc. I don't know the difference, unless there's something internal going on.

As I reported Marcus stated that the issue is related to the M1 safety and pin being used in the M2. That suggests the design or machining of the M2 frame is different? Was the M1 recalled for a drop safety issue?
