What has changed is the question that puzzles me. The trigger guard on my 1994 stainless PPK no longer clears the underside of the frame when trying to remove the slide. About a 1/16 of an inch of the trigger guard slide stop still projects up into the frame making it a matter of having to force the trigger guard down with a wedge. NOT easy and it never used to be be this difficult. So that's the problem and if any of you have a solution, please let me know. Thanks.

Before we engage in speculation, did you disassemble the trigger guard or the magazine catch at some point prior to the appearance of this problem?

Trigger Guard Problem

The trigger spring had broken and was sent to Walther for repair. Would the repair have entailed doing either of your suggestions?

Ah ha.....you have a good clue as to when and where the problem might have arisen. Did the trigger guard pull down smoothly when the pistol was returned? 1917

Trigger Guard Problem

Perhaps, but not in that order. It didn't completely pull down after it was returned. Unfortunately, I didn't use the gun for months after it was returned. My time was spent trying to convince Walther to also return the magazine I had sent with the gun that they said they had not received.

I suspect that the trigger guard pin, or the trigger guard itself-- is bent as a result of improper disassembly. Technically it's not necessary to remove either one to change a trigger spring, but who knows what was done. There is an FAQ thread, though not quite on topic, that has some useful information on removing the trigger guard. https://www.waltherforums.com/forum...ropsies-troubleshooting-magazine-fallout.html

I've wondered from time to time do owners always get their original pistol components back.....excluding replaced damaged parts. In other words, did the OP get his original trigger guard back? I know that in the past I have received other peoples accessories....one was a particularly very expensive system. I called and advised that it was not mine.. "Don't worry about it" I was told.

Good read Mike on the link....darn it....now I'm going to have to take photos and investigate removing the take down lever just to see how it works. Don't want to do it, will try not to...but in the end, one rainy day, I'll just have to do it so I can photo everything. 1917
