Went to the range today with my freshly-cleaned PK380. After about 30 roudns, all of a sudden the gun went dead, a very gentle click from the hammer, not the usual snapping noise. Gun would not fire, each ejected shell(by me manually) had no mark on the primer, wouldn't even be considered a light strike. After 4-5 rounds, I just put the gun away and shot my 22.

When I got home, I field stripped the 380 and dipped the back half of the slide in rubbing alcohol, submerging the firing pin entirely. Left it for 20-30 mins, then proceeded to reclean the entire gun again, especially around the firing pin. Now the trigger has a loud snap again, will try it again next week.


Keeping my fingers crossed....

Range session went fine, fired 50 with no issues. I think the FP channel got gummed up when I accidently hit it with some CLP.
