    709 striker guide

    Installed a lakeline striker guide in my 709, trigger improved, very smooth, improved accuracy, and big issue no more lite primer strikes.
    The install was easy, the old plastic guide was rough, wish I had made the change months ago.

    I was wondering what was causing the "gritty bump" in the trigger, from what I read it's the hole for the locking device and this guide will take care of it.

    Thanks!

    The trigger feel improved on my PT 111 G2 with the striker guide and I recommend the upgrade. The completed job on the trigger was using a heat gun on the side of the frame with the trigger safety blade secured retracted with a wire twister tie. Heat it both sides, release the safety blade...try it in dry fire. If there's still a bump or hitch...do it again.

    The plastic guide was my problem for sure, very rough plastic, the stainless guide produced an entire new gun for me.

    Got mine today!!! Read the instructions and had an OH NO moment when I read the blurb about having to drill something. Turned out it slipped right in my gun w/o any issues. I can tell it's "slicker" than before. Gonna have to tell a buddy who also has a 709.

    The moderator on the Hi-Point forum asked me to write an article about putting the stainless sleeve in so I did. Here's the link, if anyone sees any errors let me know:

    ^^ Whew, what a great write up and display. I suspect that you do this for a living... (and if you don't...you should)

    Well done article! This should be a sticky for our site.

    LOL!!! My wife used to tell me I wrote like I spoke. I would tell her that English IS my foreign language!!! I hated English in school, still don't understand it and no, I don't do it for a living (I'd starve if I did).

    My other "hobby" is O-scale model trains and I've managed to write 5 articles on those. Big thing is my camera skills have gotten better over time, plus a good camera makes a world of difference. I don't have an expensive camera, but it takes good photos. It's a Nikon Coolpix B500.

    The videos I've seen on changing out the sleeve were fine, but I was having to stop/backup so often I figured a few photos and a write up would suit me better.

    Glad you guys found it useful!!!
