EAA witness sport hammer stop at half cock
« on: November 05, 2018, 12:37:20 AM »
Hello,  I purchase a used EAA witness sport long slide from gunbroker.com.  After shooting a couple of box ammo through it, I found sometime in the DA trigger pull doesn't release the hammer all the way.  The hammer will cock and release, but it stops at the half cock position thus doesn't strike the fire pin.  Only happens in DA mode and occasionally.  I can keep pull the trigger couple more times to make it release fully.  Any idea what's wrong with it before I start to tear its frame a part?  Thank you.

This problem seems to go away after I detail strip, clean and put it back with lubricant. 
Now, here is another issue.  Where can I get a pair of good grips for it?  Will CZ75b grips fit on it since it's a small frame?
Thank you.

you might need to add a little more upwards pressure to the trigger bar lifter spring
