light primer strike P10-C
« on: October 31, 2020, 12:46:09 PM »
Any one have a fix for light primer strikes?  My P10-C is my EDC so a round gets chamberd and cleared frequently.  Everytime I re-chamber a round it dimples the primer

I don't own a p10c, so take this with a grain of salt. Might want to check your striker spring and cup(s).

Do you really want your email address as your user name? This forum gets crawled by data harvesting bots. I can change it if you wish.

Thank you for the advice.  I disassembled the striker yesterday, the striker cups are maybe a week old.   It seems like the "Automatic safety" that should be locking back the firing pin is not always engaging, allowing the firing pin to free float.  The pin and the spring for the automatic safety both appear to be in working order.  This is clearly not functioning the way it was supposed to, however I am not sure of the reason why or how to fix.

I wouldn't know of a fix either as I have zero experience with the p10 platform. But it does sound like the firing pin is free floating causing the light primer strikes.

Here's some more i found online. Sounds like the  firing pin block or it's spring is defective.

Thank you, I just bought a factory new striker group.  The tolerances look similar, at a glance, to the original part that is in my gun.  Ill take a closer look in a few days.

Also, check the firing pin channel. If it's full of gunk, it could be sticking just enough to dimple the primer.

I bought right from CZ.  Their web-store has been down so I called (800) 955-4486 and ordered by phone.

I replaced the striker group and it seems like the problem has subsided.  This is a 6 month old gun with approx 500 rounds through it.  This should not be failing this quickly.

I'm not even going to get into your pistol's issue what interests me here is the amount of marking on the round you posted pics of. You obviously need to read up and educate yourself on why it is never a good idea to cycle live rounds multiple times that way. You are setting yourself up for a prime case of bullet set back and a very possible catastrophic failure scenario by doing this.
