P10c Trigger oddness
« on: May 12, 2019, 09:16:48 PM »
Hello all,

I recently took delivery of a late 2018 p10c. This is my 2nd p10c so I am somewhat familiar with them. 

This new gun was meant to be one to tinker with and perhaps use in some local competition if it could be refined enough.

So I function check what I can at the store and take it home. I generally like to do a few minutes of dry fire before cleaning and lubing and then shooting. I start dry fire and this thing is rough. Audible and tactile grit on take up and an 2-stage feel almost. Break is okay but stiff in my opinion. Reset is good and follow up pull is alright.

I know these poly, striker fired deals take a little time to break in, but my first p10 rivaled my well loved Canik TP9SF's trigger out of the gate and surpassed it after 300 rounds or so. This new one, I don't know. It's REALLY really rough. I did more dry fire today and it maybe smoothed out some but I don't want to shoot a thousand rounds through this thing and then start tuning on it if it's a lost cause. I sent an email to the CZ warranty department as well, but I wanted to check in and see if any of you had a similar scenario.

Thanks!

Maybe it just needs to be detail stripped and cleaned and lubricated. Perhaps polish a few rough spots while it?s apart.

That is likely going to be the project for tomorrow afternoon if this rain keeps up! Honestly kinda hate detail stripping the p10 vs a g19 but it's not the end of the world!

Mine was also pretty gritty on take up, but very smooth then on.
The take up is when the trigger bar moves the firing pin plug.
So you have 2 available options to correct that situation.
The first one is to polish all contact points.
The second (my personal choice) is to remove the firing pin block mechanisms.
Doing so makes the trigger take up extremely smooth (like pulling on air), BUT will probably void the warranty (if you are into those things), have a possible accidental discharge if the gun is dropped (but firing pin blocks are a new thing. Many guns, until recently never had one), and after removing the block mechanisms, you might not be able to put it back, it is pretty tricky.
As I said, I chose option 2, but my risk threshold is very high.

I put 150 rounds through it this afternoon and it did clean up some, most notably at the wall and break. It is now a lot closer to my original p10. I am going to put another 150-200 through it tomorrow and then see about giving it a full clean and polish and get it back together and see where we are. I'd like to get this HBI trigger shoe and striker spring installed when it's all apart but I won't do any of that until this trigger bar is smoother.

I strongly recommend the CGW tool steel striker as well. Really helped clean up mine.

I'll second the Cajun striker.  It made a noticeable difference in my P10Cs and P10F.  It was money well spent.
